Originally from Montana, I happily reside in Denver, Colorado, Enthusiastic and ambitious about comics and visual storytelling, I graduated from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in 2007 with a BFA in Illustration. Intent on becoming a comic book penciller and inker, I place emphasis on clear storytelling, crisp pencils, and visually enticing line work. My illustration experience ranges from traditional to digital mediums with a wide variety of subject matter, science fiction and fantasy being recurring themes.
In June of 2011 I self-published my first comic anthology, called "The Fox Witch and Other Tales." All six stories are online for you to read for free! Also online is my 24-Hour Comic, "Dream of Green."

The Fox Witch
The first story of "The Fox Witch and Other Tales," was...um..."The Fox Witch!" I wanted the story to be pulpy and cliché, so I wrote about a woman riding through the woods who had to be rescued, of course, by a man as she faints and screams all over the place. After writing the first draft, I realized it was boring and un-feminist of me to write a sexist story. I begged my sister, Rosa, and my friend, Lonnie, to help me out. Between the two of them, they fixed the script as best they could, added the plot twist, and handed it back to me to draw the damned thing.
