I am a painter and Illustrator based in Ypsilanti Michigan. I have worked on my creator owned series Into The Dust, as well as 6 comic books teaching people magic tricks written by mentalist Patrick Redford. I curated and published 3 collections of short comic stories of Michigan cartoonists in conjunction with traveling exhibits. I received my BFA from Eastern Michigan University in 2006, and have had my art in a half dozen gallery exhibits on comic and pop art. In 2016 I had my first solo exhibition titled "Pop! Cultured?" which featured over 50 of my paintings. I enjoy putting puzzles in my paintings, drawing with both of my hands, and painting cartoon characters in a realistic way. I am currently producing a new painting every week for my Patreon followers, as well as a freelance illustrator for some publications like Current Affairs.
