Called "...a brilliant funnyman" by the executive producer of The Late Late Show on CBS, auGi created, wrote, produced, and performed in hundreds of shows at both The Second City and the world famous Improv in Hollywood, was featured regularly on the first season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and appeared on Comedy Central and E!

auGi wrote and starred in his autobiographical solo show, Rockstar Trapped in a Nurd’s Body, which played to sold-out houses during both the Fertile Ground and Singlehandedly festivals, and was the featured act in Superuckus ‘11—a benefit in memory of his mom held for the National MS Society. His second solo show—Teenage Commando—which premiered in Portland in 2012, was called “laugh out-loud funny and genuinely touching” by Portland’s leading entertainment publication, Willamette Week.

Inspired by his mom who lived with MS for 34 years, auGi wove together his background in writing, storytelling, creative direction and stagecraft as the VP of Marketing & Events for the National MS Society, Oregon Chapter. During his 4-year stint, the Chapter led the country with double-digit revenue growth.

Before discovering his life’s core work, auGi was the Director of New Media at AT&T, a Creative Director at Ticketmaster Irvine, was an adjunct professor at Portland State University, launched three successful startups (and sold two), co-founded The Pint of Portland, and ate far too many donuts.

auGi really likes donuts. Especially chocolate-covered Old-fashioned with peanut sprinkles.
