AJ-EJ
 
EJ writes about AJ below:

AJ Tesler is a guy I know from the improv world. We were at Improv Olympic at the same time in the mid 2000’s. Now AJ is married and has a little girl with Rett Syndrome.

RS is a regressing neurological disorder occurring exclusively in young females. AJ came to my house before the holidays and talked with me about Rett Syndrome and what a parent and a child goes through when they find out. We also talk about his proactive way of coping. We talk to AJ’s daughters doctor, Dr Jeffrey Neul via phone. He talks about the effects and the research being done. 

We work in some lighter moments here and there. We talk about the good old days of our improv careers and how he met his wife through comedy.
