Bio:

I grew up in Durango, CO and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997. In 2003 I moved to the northern CA coastal town of Fort Bragg where I studied fine furniture making at the College of the Redwoods Fine Furniture Program. I moved back to San Francisco in 2005 where I went on to earn a BFA in Illustration from California College of the Arts. In 2012 I moved to New York City to attend the School of Visual Arts where I earned an MFA in the Illustration as Visual Essay program.  I currently live and work in Colorado.
