More than anything else in the world, I want to make people laugh. Since I was a young child, I always had a need to entertain people. Whether I was singing, acting, or writing, I just wanted to make people feel something. When I was in high school, I took my first TV Production class, and from that point on I knew what I had to do. I wanted to be a screenwriter.

Over the last few years, I have worked toward my ultimate goal, and have defined exactly what it is that I want to do, sketch comedy writing. I have earned vocational certifications in both TV Production and Digital Design, and I have learned the art of improvisational comedy, which is something that has really helped my writing. In addition, I have taken comedy writing classes with the legendary Second City Training Center. I have been working diligently toward my ultimate goal.

Of course, I know that I have a pretty ambitious goal, and that is why I have broken it down into a set of smaller and more manageable goals. Within the next five years, I would like to finish up my degree program, and move to Chicago to be able to further study comedy writing. I want to create stories that will make people laugh, and feel good. I have set up my goals to make my dream a reality.
