I'm a some time cartoonist living in Vermont (good ole' yankeedom). I work as an Architect and also take on an illustration job from time to time. I just completed Dumpling King, a graphic novel set in New Jersey (and at the dawn of time).  It started as an homage to the weirdness of growing up in suburban New Jersey among my fellow immigrants but quickly changed to include some fantastical / mythic elements. Honestly, I didn't know they were going to be a part of the story until they were there. I hope to collect it soon. You can see more of Dumpling King here and here.

I received an MFA from the Center for Cartoon Studies in 2008. For undergrad, I attended the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at the Cooper Union in New York, earning a B. Arch in 2002.

I was awarded a Xeric Grant in 2008 for Wall City, my thesis project at the Center for Cartoon Studies.
