I'm an artist, cartoonist, illustrator, and educator from Baltimore.

I aim for my work to be unprecious, articulate, and resonant. Although my background is as a painter, the past few years I've been focusing on illustration, comics, and zines/artist's books about complex and confounding experiences. For a long time I have been working on a project of sending small ink drawings to folks in the mail. I'd like to paint more. I really enjoy drawing, which is good because I can't seem to stop.

Currently, I am based in St Louis, where I do the adjunct shuffle helping students prepare for an artistic life and explore image making as a means of seeing the world and themselves.

I'm available for freelance work and collaborative projects, so if you've got something you think I'd be good for or if you have any questions about my work, feel free to reach out.
