I had an amazing time as a StoryTelling Coach at Barnard's Entrepreneurs In Training; a pre-college summer program for high school girls where they must develop and pitch an original product to a panel of successful businessmen and women.
It's the StoryTeller's job to help the students present a pitch that is fun, creative, clear, and unique. My coaching style specifically teaches non-performers theatrical techniques to apply to their presentation -- and the result is astonishing.
This was my third consecutive year participating in the program and it was no less inspiring this time around!
I'll be performing a funny little rap I wrote called, 'Gentrify This Pussy' tonight at UCB Chelsea in Wepa! Night of Hella Puerto Ricans which begins at 9:30pm.

The restraining orders are going to POUR IN after this performance.
So excited to announce that 'Be Sexy', RosaBaby's short about a threesome that goes awry, has won the Audience Choice Award for Comedy at Revry's Out WebFest! Alex and I were so bummed we couldn't be in LA for the festival but were pleasantly surprised to find that an entire crowd of strangers voted for our short instead of their friends. #shade

RosaBaby's first short film, 'Be Sexy', has been featured on WhoHaha, Elizabeth Banks's site which highlights funny women.
Their synopsis is perfect:
"Threesomes! They always seem like an awesome idea, until you’re writhing around down on the floor trying to poke your best friend’s eyes out. This cautionary tale about trying to hook up with a hottie with your bff comes from RosaBaby Comedy, and it’s our new favorite thing."
But don't take my word for it, see it on their site here!
Check out the trailer below.
'Hostess', a hilarious webseries written and starring Chelsea Frei, has been published on Funny or Die's featured section and Elizabeth Banks' comedy site, WhoHaHa. I play an entitled coke head in Episode 3, "Coke Check". But don't take my word for it, the video is right beneath all this boring text!
'Be Sexy', the comedic short I wrote, produced, and starred in with Alex Nader, has been selected to screen in the Out WebFest in Los Angeles next month in addition to competing in Fandependent Films. Both offer a juicy cash prize so wish ya boy luck!
I performed with Allison Goldberg and Jen Jamula in Blogologues at The People's Improv Theater on Friday, April 21st to a sold out audience.
Blogologues is a live show where actors contextualize material found online and perform it word for word (typo's and all!). Some pieces we did on Friday were 'Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy' by Milo Yiannopoulos and 'Homosexuality Exploding Among Youth' by Kirk Cameron and his brother, Paul Cameron.
Back in November my writing partner, Alex Nader, and I won first place in the Give 'Em Hill Short Film Contest for our sketch, 'Pick A Pie' which parodied the undecided voter in the 2016 election. The contest was judged by James Franco and Emmy Award winning writer and producer of Sex and the City, Jenny Bicks. We won first place and with our cash earnings we produced our first comedic short, 'Be Sexy'.
'Be Sexy' is about two friends attempting to have a threesome with a sexy stranger but their competitive nature ultimately gets in the way.
Co-Produced, Directed, and Edited by Emmy Award winning Steve W. Thompson
