I’m a cartoonist from the Green Mountain State! I graduated from the Center For Cartoon Studies in 2011, and have been self-publishing my own comics ever since. I table at several conventions every year, and devote most of my time to my series Alice Frame. I also do several web comics, including my latest weekly strip Rip & Gidge, and my parody series Despondent Mega Man.

As a child of the 80s, most of my inspiration comes from films and television from that time. Films like Ghostbusters, Gremlins, and Back to The Future shaped who I am today. As such, my work is often funny, creepy, techy, and full of charm. My style as been called “darkly cute,” and I would have to agree.

I am also a huge Nintendo fan. In my awkward teenage years, the Super Nintendo and I were the best of friends, so it means a lot to me. My friend Randall Drew and I co-edited a SNES comics anthology together just to prove this point. Despondent Mega Man started as a comic about the Blue Bomber, but is so littered with video game cameos from any an all series that I can’t even keep track anymore!
