I grew up in small-town, liberal Vermont, a nerdy kid who drew all the time. I did well in school,
read a lot, and was fascinated by martial arts. I did illustrations and comics for
my high school newspaper, co-edited and illustrated the literary magazine, and painted a mural on
the wall of one of the school hallways. I toyed briefly with being an engineer, but then decided
to do the sensible thing and went to art school. I graduated from Parsons School of Design, lucked into
a job making computer games, and managed to draw a couple of graphic novels in my spare time.
These days I live in Washington DC and I still draw all the time. The full arc of my professional career is described in my resume.
