I am lucky enough to spend most of my time drawing pictures, making comics, teaching comics at the University of Wisconsin Stout, daydreaming about boats, and feeding the cats. I hold my MFA in Comics from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and my PhD in Design Communication/Visual Ethnography (thesis on the visual ethnography of internet memes) from the University of Minnesota.

I live in a small house with a big garden in Minneapolis with my partner Bryan, our daughter, the aforementioned cats, and many many books.  I dislike sudden loud noises and styrofoam packing peanuts, but adore regional candy and road-side attractions.
