BAUS AFTER Baby

Around this time last year, I quit my full-time job performing comedy at The Second City in Chicago. I found what once was a dream job to be a stifling, controlling environment that lacked the basic necessities to support a diverse pool of talent which was keeping me away from my true passions: tackling creative entrepreneurship while maintaining creative control over my life as a performance artist.
