Cultural Influences: Bruno Munari, Margaret Kilgallen, Robert Bringhurst, architectural salvage, hip hop, short fiction, train rides, coffee culture, urban planning, the choreography of Jirí Kylián and Merce Cunningham, dance notation, comedy, fluxus poetry, Surrealism, old type specimens and wallpaper patterns, back issues of Dot Dot Dot.

Environment: By day, I work in a white-washed loft-like space. By night, I design and illustrate (and write) at an oversized antique steamer trunk with a fold-down desk.
