I'm an illustrator and cartoonist based in New Jersey with a love of extremely bright colors and cautionary endings. I fancy myself to be a bit of a mythographer; weaving tales of how and why things have come to be as well as giving my eclectic crew of characters a common, whimsical universe to cohabitate. I work primarily in ink, gouache, silkscreen and digital to create my pieces. Recently, I co-founded a comics collective that self-publishes a yearly anthology called Three-Armed Squid themed around the magical number 4.

Some of my comics and hand-made books are available at fine comic retailers in New York, such as Desert Island Comics and Grumpy Bert.
