I am a Author, inspirational speaker and Stand- up Comedian at New York City’s Premier Comedy Night Club Carolines On Broadway. I was born with Tourettes and OCD and battled my whole life with this disability. I got bullied in school because of my uncontrollable urges called “tics”. I lost hope in everything and lost the hope to live, turning to substance abuse. I then met the women of my dreams that never judged me for my Tourettes. She eventually got tired of my substance abuse ways and was gonna leave me. I had a decision to make. To walk alone or to walk with God. I surrended my life to God and I never looked back. God saved me and gave me my life back. He delivered me from all the substance abuse in my life. I had an encounter with the Holy Spirit that told me you have a gift of comedy and to pursue your dream of becoming a Stand up Comedian. I put God first in my life and put all my trust in him. I became what God destined me to be. I am now a Tourettes Stand-up Comedian and spread awareness of what Tourettes truly is through my comedy act. People leave my shows saying “I now know what tourettes truly is”. I perform to inspire. My goals in life are simple. To spread awareness of tourettes through my comedy act. Also to educate children, parents, and teachers on what tourettes truly is through my true life story. My true life story is in my book I wrote called “How God Saved Me”. No one knows my true life story and what I truly went through dealing with Tourettes. I opened up my life and wrote a book to let children know even though we have Tourettes there is hope. We can become whatever we want in life we just got to believe. I am a living testimony of Gods power and want to give children ther lives back like God gave me mine back.
My life story has been featured on Fios1 News, AllNoiseRadio.com, the spring edition of the National Tourettes Magazine, and in Life Magazines, which is distrubted through the East End of Long Island.
