I come from the wilds of Washington and spent my formative years digging for gnomes on the school playground, pretending to be Cornflower Fieldmouse and running internal monologues in the voice of Anne Shirley.
I'm currently going after my Master's of Illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York. In 2012, I graduated with honors from Seattle's Cornish College of the Arts with a BFA in Graphic Design.
I have an unnatural obsession with circus history and am highly defensive of clowns. I also enjoy 20th century history (in particular), vernacular jazz dance and jazz music history. I sold my soul to
and will probably never get it back.
