    Profile

    I work as a freelance and staff illustrator and animator.  Illustration clients include The New York Times, The New Yorker, Scientific American, Playboy, The Washington Post, VICE, Newsweek, NPR, Matter, and others, with works in multiple American Illustration and Society of Illustrators Annuals.  My animated short films have been screened by The New York Times, Slamdance Film Festival, Sarasota Film Festival, BENDFilm, Animation Block Party, Rooftop Films, MoMA PS1, Centre Pompidou, and more.

    As a multidisciplinary artist, my current practice is an ongoing exploration on the idea of myths and archetypes, through experimental films, artist books and zines, painting, and ceramics.
