Duration: I worked as a staff illustrator for Charleston's daily newspaper for seven years, and recently started firing on all cylinders with my own gig in 2005.
Education: BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design.
Cultural Influences: Music, American history, the way people's mouths move when they talk (it's different from person to person), the Nordic countries, surfing, Central America. Really, anything and everything.
Environment: I live and work in an old house in the heart of historic downtown Charleston. Everything is creaky and drafty and used—and I love it.
Philosophy: Be observant.
