He is the host and curator of Poetry/Cabaret, a new performance series that brings together the city's top poets, comedians, and cabaret performers for a hybrid evening of emotional whiplash in response to a common theme.

In recent years, he has written and performed monologues at a number of venues in New York City, including Ars Nova, The Duplex, Joe's Pub, The Peoples Improv Theater, and Sid Gold's Request Room.
