I'm an illustrator and cartoonist currently living in Brooklyn. Originally from New Jersey, I got my BFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in 2014. One time someone said my work was “brutal, yet sensitive” and I’m still trying to decide where I want that tattooed on my body.

I run Sluggish Wife, a store for people who love magic and lifting, as well.

Clients include The New York Times, The New Yorker, NBC News, The Freelancer's Union, Little Bee Books, The Baffler, Lit Hub, The Sierra Club, The Marshall Project, The Nib, Buzzfeed, Motherboard, Noisey, The Spruce, The Balance, Lifewire, and Lenny Letter.
