My ambition exceeds my free time...


I'm an artist. I paint, I draw, I illustrate, I draw comics, I even play drums.

I'm an NIU Huskie: Class of 2002 (BFA) and 2006 (MFA).

I work as a freelance artist in greater Chicago consulting various businesses within my specializations: web, print, powerpoint, and my specialty: cartooning and illustration.

I have two web comics: "The Thursday Treat," and "Gone Clean Wholesome Fun" and I'm currently writing new iterations of those cartoons, as well as working on expanding my paintings, portfolio work, and hopefully a graphic novel. I also sub a lot on Threadless.

My services are always available and my paintings are always for sale; original or print.
