I’m a storyteller at heart, and I’ve been lucky to work in several different concentrations at the same time during my career.
Published by Fantagraphics and SpongeBob Comics, I earned an MFA in Cartooning from the Center for Cartoon Studies. I have also created several webcomics.
Comics and design go hand in hand for producing illustrations. I’ve done illustrations for companies like Storz Brewery and Slate.com
I have been working professionally as a graphic designer since 1995, and I am now currently the creative director at B² Interactive, a digital marketing agency in Omaha, Nebraska.

Twenty-six years ago, I dislocated my right knee while we were on a family vacation in Colorado. After the initial dislocation, it seemed to be better. I wasn't running a marathon or anything, but it was okay to walk on. Several days later, we stopped for an...read more
