A Bit About Me

From concept to finished product, I am skilled in all aspects of creating a book. I wrote Maker Comics: Live Sustainably! in addition to many of my own comics. I've created illustrations and comics. I've laid out or lettered minicomics and books, including the initial English lettering for Eisner-winner Shuna's Journey by Hayao Miyazaki. I've proofread or copyedited dozens of books and prepped printer files for both myself and a small publisher. I've designed covers and curated comic anthologies. I love every aspect of book creation. Including reading them.


I look forward to hearing from you.

Book Coaching

I write. You write. We all write with all our might.

Let's work together to strengthen your book, whatever stage you are at. Though not limited to these, my expertise is with self-publishing and illustrated books (be that comics, hybrid books or illustrated adult books, but not children's books), as well as science fiction.

Contact me to discuss project scope and rates. Typically around $10 per page of manuscript.

With my love for the natural world, a certificate in natural science illustration seemed inevitable.

With a love for books, I dreamt of making them. And now I've worked for Chelsea Green Publishing and First Second.


With a love of illustration and storytelling, comics were merely the realization I could marry my two loves.
