Born 1971, Indianapolis, IN
Lives and works in New York City

Over the last fifteen years, I have created the world of Refractoria, a comprehensive imagino-ordinary world that is equal parts autobiography and pure fantasy. In general, I draw every day—it is a habit I've had since I was a kid.

I graduated from Chicago's American Academy of Art in 1999 with a BFA. I received my MFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2006 here in NYC.

I teach drawing along with some digital basics (Photoshop/Illustrator) and even the occasional design class at the New School in Manhattan.
