What was your dream job as a child and how has that changed or informed what your dream job is now?

When I was a kid I really wanted to be an artist. I wanted to make stuff and I wanted people to comment on each of the little details like, “ooh you made that cow’s hairbow really big and pink.”

I guess it’s similar. My dream is to perform comedy in various forms ranging from stand-up to comedic acting and have people get excited over line-delivery and my crazy mind. Also, people are free to comment on how big and pink my hairbows are.

At the conclusion of my senior year in high school, my AP English teacher suggested a book for summer reading. “Looking for Alaska is a great read, I think you all will really enjoy it,” she gushed. Unfortunately I was desperate for a break from being told what to read and when, and as such, thoroughly ignored her recommendation.

Years and years later, I picked up The Fault in Our Stars after seeing it advertised all over the busy New York City subway. A bright yellow sign with the words, “The #1 Mega Best-Seller Everyone is Reading” had become part of my bi-daily commute. I had no-less than 8 friends reading it, and since reading became fun again post-academia (and I needed a new book to read for my next Tipsy Book Review) I bought a copy at the 45th street Barnes and Noble. 

That video— by some amazing stroke of luck— made it to the author and fellow youtuber, John Green, and he has since changed my life in ways that will stay with me forever. He has supported my channel, given priceless advice, and above all, been this long-distance friend that has an unwavering belief that I can make my own dreams come true. 

I cannot thank him, his delightful wife, Sarah, Stan, and the rest of the team enough for inviting me to Indiana and being so professional, gracious, patient, and encouraging. This experience will no doubt inform the rest of my entertainment and comedy career, and I am better for it. 

Thanks so much, guys.
