He's a proud alumnus of both UCB's sketch writing program and Sally's Puppy Palace, where he trained in obedience, tinkling outside, and being a good boy. He's written and performed at UCB's Not Too Shabby and told jokes to audiences in several former British colonies across the globe.

He's been cut out of every single Terrence Malick film and has been able to read and write for over seventeen years.
