I try to flush as much life into the process as possible, to test boundaries, to explore the flaws, to live in my art, and to expand my understanding of the ideas in front of me. Illustration, comics, design, painting, and drawing all allow me to do this in different and exciting ways. With every challenge is the opportunity to learn and grow.

In 2005 I moved to LA from San Diego, CA to earn my BFA in illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Since graduating in 2007 I've been hard at work in a variety of art and design fields including editorial and book illustration, comics, advertising, television, storyboarding and writing, animation, mural and installation design and execution, logo and packaging, apparel, and gallery work.

I'm currently living in Los Angeles, CA with my twin daughters Scarlett and Juniper and my wonderful artist wife, Erin Althea.
