I write and draw comics and children's books.
Simple Bio in two short sentences.
I’m an author and cartoonist for comics and children's books.
Longer and a wee bit more boring but possibly funny Bio.
I was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina and graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art Studio with a concentration in Graphic Design. What a mouthful. Basically, I grew up in the southern United States, and got an art degree.
My career started as a graphic designer and illustrator for my state’s health department, eventually being promoted as the art and photography director. I managed a small crew of creative designers, writers, and photographers. I directed campaigns for print, the web, and television to promote healthy living and protecting the environment for our state citizens.
My passion is writing and illustrating comics and children’s books. It’s something I enjoy and hope to make a main gig in the future. Probably after the kids graduate from university.
Speaking of kids, I’m married to a wonderful, strong, brave, and supportive woman. Maybe you’ve heard of her? We have two smart, sweet, and beautiful kids; a couple hound dogs; but no cats—my daughter and I are allergic.
My illustration work has appeared in publications for the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, American Advertising Awards of the Midlands, Augusta University Magazines, small businesses, on t-shirts and promotional material, and various websites.
I’m currently a volunteer for my local Carolinas chapter of the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators.
