Hey - I teach people stuff! 


I’ve taught sketch, screenwriting, and satire at theaters and colleges across the country.

I'm also available for one-on-one teaching as well as consulting projects.

A selection of current classes:


Magnet Theater (NY)

Introduction to Writing Satire (next class begins March 2018)



My satire students have been published in Shouts & Murmurs in The New Yorker, McSweeney’s, National Lampoon, The Onion, The Hairpin, StarWipe (RIP), The Second City Network, Funny or Die, Funny Women on The Rumpus, Robot Butt, and pretty much every comedy outlet under the sun.

Selected Past Teaching

Catapult: Humor Writing Bootcamp (co-taught with Elissa Bassist, editor of Funny Women on The Rumpus)

Northwestern University: Introduction to Screenwriting 

Pacific Northwest College of Art: Modern Comedy and Satire (Literature Seminar), Introduction to Scripting, Scripting Intensive, Fight the Future: Dystopian and Post-Apocalyptic Stories* 

*Yes, that last class shares a title with the first X-Files movie on purpose. You gotta enjoy your life, huh?

I develop all my own courses and workshops. Contact me if you are looking for a satire workshop, an ongoing class, or detailed instructions on how to fall down in public on a daily basis. Past satire workshops have been in September 2017 in Washington, D.C. and December 2017 at Catapult in NY.
