About
17 September 2014

I’m an illustrator, author, and publisher who specializes in food & beverage and sequential storytelling.  My partner Dave Kelly and I run So What? Press, an award-winning comics imprint, and host the Brooklyn Comic Writers Workshop.  In between making stories, I archive them at Random House Children’s Books.

A Wisconsin native now Brooklyn transplant, I enjoy coffee, cocktails, Byzantine lore, Pre-Columbian art, and Vincent Price movies.
