About
Stunning! Amazing!

I am an illustrator and comic artist working out of the San Francisco Bay Area. My work has seen print in the East Bay Express, the Lavapunch comics anthology, and the Missed Connections and Bridge Project anthologies. On the web, my work has appeared on the frontpages of XIP, Retrocrush, Somethingawful, and creativeskin.

Right now, I am currently working as a storyboard artist at Cartoon Network Studios on "Regular Show" by JG Quintel. It's been a culture shock fer sure-- for one, I can't get over the fact that people are paying me cash monies to draw, and for two, it's impossible to get a decent banh mi in Burbank! I used to work in Silicon Valley as a web developer at National Semiconductor. I still remember a lot of HTML, CSS, Java, PHP, Perl, JSP and javascript, HONEST!!!

what was it like working around parodying "the breakfast club"?

It was fun! and EASY!!! Bottle episodes are the best!

It was really fun to go so dark with Benson and Rigby. At the part where they?re talking about what makes them anxious I couldn?t believe we were writing a kid?s show!
