A Brief Bio or Personal Summary

Originally from Buffalo, NY, I worked at a small town newspaper in Kentucky before moving out to the Seattle area in 2002 to study animation at the DigiPen Institute Of Technology. I've been doing art and animation for video games ever since, as well as the occasional graphic design or illustration project when I have the time.

What are you currently working on?

In addition to doing new animation for my online portfolio (, I've been working on developing an original comic strip with the intention of submitting it to The Stranger on a weekly basis.


Why should people vote for you?

I spent my entire college career doing cartoons and comic strips for my student newspapers, and I've missed it, so I view this as an opportunity to get back to spending more time doing what I love to do: Write and draw cartoons for grown-ups.
