I am a freelance illustrator living and working in my hometown of Portland, ME. Raised on horror films and 70's punk, I began creating at a young age, experimenting with film, sculpture, painting, and finally focusing on illustration. Drawing on my love for the absurd, I take influence from everything from B-Action Movies, to early adventure comics and, of course, the real (weird) world. I'm here as an advocate for quality gimmicks and a  lover of wordplay. When I'm not illustrating I am teaching illustration at my alma muter Maine College of Art, playing drums, or cooking.
