I was born and raised in Durham, North Carolina. I grew up with a love of comics, but my feet kept being pulled back to the ground by the realities of the world. Thus, it wasn’t until I was in my early-20s that I discovered I could make a living making pretty pictures. (Or at least that I could try.) In 2013, I graduated with an Associates in Graphic Design, and immediately I started freelancing.

I moved from North Carolina to Portland in 2015. Since then I’ve maintained multiple freelance clients while going back to school to earn my Bachelor’s degree, while working a part-time job as an in-house designer. Am I a hard-worker? Sure. Am I nuts for doing all of that? Also yes.
