Born in 1988. My child hood was spent exploring Detroit and my teen years drawing between the beaches of FL.
Now i’m creating in Berlin, Germany. Most of my time is spent drawing storyboards for advertising, video games & films all over the world. I have 3 Intellectual properties, each with its own unique world, characters, and narrative: Muta, Eco Star and The Singing Lands of Amar. I actively work on a monthly comic called Staub with writer Kevin Chow for Schmutz magazine. When I’m not making things you will find me playing D&D with friends or hanging out with my explosively creative wife.
