I am a freelance cartoonist, illustrator and designer living in Cincinnati with my wife, Jacie, and puppy, Ollie.

For 8 years I designed kids t-shirt graphics for Target, until trading in the corporate office for a basement studio. Now, I spend my days designing skateboards and t-shirts, writing and drawing comics, and illustrating books for kids. 

I co-run One Percent Press with my buddy Stephen Floyd. We publish comics and release records by our friends.

I’ve illustrated lots of kids books, including the Charlie Joe Jackson series. For book illustration work, I’m represented by Judy Hansen.

I love making rad stuff that tell honest, whimsical and optimistic stories with words and pictures. If you’d like to work together, please get in touch.
