I was born in Santa Barbara, California and have lived on the West Coast my entire life.
I'm fascinated with all kinds of art, design and storytelling. From a young age, I've deeply
admired fine art, typography, film, music and popular culture. My major interests include
underground comics, avant garde films, poster art, documentaries and I'm constantly
seeking new and old music to listen to.
After graduating high school I began creating my first comic book series, Caffeine and was
published before I reached my twenties.
Upon completing my first graphic novel, I began studying graphic design and motion graphics.
In 2011, I graduated from the Pacific Northwest College of Art with a BFA in
I'm currently a graphic designer living and working in Portland, Oregon.
I never want to stop learning and always root for the underdog.
