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.
