Fun Fact:
I started doing stand-up comedy in 2018 and have performed at shows in clubs all over New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. I had the chance to perform with Joe Matarese from America’s Got Talent and Jacob Williams from MTV’s Wild’N Out.

I was also one of the first comics to perform on Zoom during COVID and went on to produce many shows. I interviewed comics such as “The Lovemaster” Craig Shoemaker, John Franklin from the Netflix series “The Circle”, and many other headlining comedians throughout the country.

Why did you go into Aquatics instruction?
Until 2021, it wasn’t a part of the plan for my life. I worked in radio previously and needed a job. I passed the lifeguard certification testing process and became a lifeguard. After working for the company for a few months, I worked with the team at the Center and obtained my teaching certification. I like to think that if I could decide to try something I never thought of doing, work hard at it and become someone who can help others do it, anyone can learn how to swim. Hopefully, I can help you out sometime soon! I’m always by the pool, so feel free to ask me anything!
