A Brief Bio or Personal Summary

Born in Anaheim California, I was transformed by Star Wars, and then discovered comics. I have read comics over the course of my entire life.

I'm an adventurous and engaged person, and I love the community and artistry that Comics has fostered in my life.

What are you currently working on?

Just finished Vampirella for Dynamite comics (first published work! Yay!) and am currently working on a local indy comic called Bonsai for Around The Sound comics. 

 

I am also working on a new project for Dynamite that hasn't been announced yet.

 

Why should people vote for you?

 try and put my heart and soul into every piece of art that I do. I gave up life as a Tech Support Manager in order to chase my dream of drawing comics and I haven't looked back. 

 

My goal is to create art that tells a good story, strikes a chord with people, and is visually interesting.
