When no one is looking you like to: start fights with smaller, weaker guys and kick them between the legs when they’re not looking either.
Biggest Influences: the little devil and little angel on my shoulder
Best Advice for People Who want to learn improv: While performing, never admit mistakes. After the show, fess up and learn from all of them.

Fav thing about CSz: The audience; I love performing when people are there.
Who is your hero/heroine? Dorothy Gale. She went all the way over that rainbow.
Where would you like to vacation and why? Yosemite, every time.
How did you get involved with improv?
I have always loved the stage. When I was little I would stand up on the fireplace and demand the room’s attention. My goal was to command it, but I would settle for demanding. I never grew out of it. I performed with a high school improv troop and then began a theatre degree.
You left CSz Utah for a while, what's the story behind that?
We moved to Jackson Hole for a year to work on the river and to start an improv club of our own.
What scares you about performing?
What if, while in the middle of a really funny scene, I get a paper cut and the vampires in the audience all attack me?
Is there a difference between Provo crowds and other audiences you've performed for?
They all look the same in the dark. I don’t like to look at the audience during a show, I have nervous bladder syndrome.
What is your favorite game and why?
Patty Cake, because everybody wins.
Name an embarrassing moment you had at CSz.
I once demanded that a man in the back of the room stand up and be recognized as one of the judges. He refused, and when I said that he must, several people in the audience let me know that the man was in a wheel chair.
What's it like performing with so much family: Pat, Ben, and each other?
It’s like our family reunion every time. There’s the awkwardness as we try to catch up; food, a lot of food; and Ben always ends up with his shirt off rubbing his belly.
What is an area you wished you were better in--improv wise (gibberish, guessing, singing)?
Makin’ stuff up.
When did you guys meet? Whats your love story, in essence?
I met Tanya while looking for a different girl at an apartment complex. Ever since that night we’ve been emotionally married, technically married too, but we don’t put too much weight on out-dated conventions like marriage or women’s rights.
