Bio

I received my BFA from SAIC in 2009. While at SAIC, I spent the majority of my studio credits studying animation, drawing, and comics. After graduating I worked as a graphic designer before returning to SAIC. Currently, I am collaborating with SAIC faculty member Beth Hetland on a comics series titled Half Asleep. I thoroughly enjoy reviewing the portfolios of prospective SAIC students. I hope the review process acts as a microcosm of how a student will be challenged and encouraged during their time at SAIC.
