I was born in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, but lived most of my life in suburban Pennsylvania. I relocated to Baltimore, Maryland to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art, where I subsequently taught in the Illustration department from 2011 to 2013. I currently live and work in Brooklyn.
My work has been recognized by Spectrum, American Illustration, and The Society of Illustrators. I won a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators in the Institutional category of the Illustration Annual 54, and a Gold Award from Spectrum in 2013. FANTASY BASKETBALL! won the 2014 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Artist.
I also do background drawings for Steven Universe on Cartoon Network.
