oby believes that when people are brought together, great ideas can happen. With this philosophy, he has spent his professional career landing creative minds in the same room. It is this logistical networking that he brings to ?What If!.

Growing up in an artistic family, Toby was always encouraged to explore his creative side. After completing his degree at the University of Vermont, he traveled the country engaging with the worlds of theater, film, and comedy. Since moving to NYC, he has founded, produced, and curated three annual festivals with an international reach: The NYC Improv Festival, The New York City Sketch Festival, and SOLOCOM NYC. He also spent two years as the Associate Artistic Director of The Peoples Improv Theater.

Born in California, raised in Vermont, and having lived in NYC for nearly 10 years, Toby calls most of America home. In his free time you can find him planning his next international adventure, hitting the pool to de-stress, or performing with his improv ensemble.
