Hi! I am a writer and illustrator living in Washington, D.C. I post a comic a day on Instagram, and I'm working on a book of illustrated essays.
I'm also doing illustrations for a break-up app (!) coming in 2017.
I value optimism, honesty, and vulnerability. I do not value "having chill." I'm originally from Seattle, my favorite city is Rio de Janeiro, and I identify strongly with zebras. They always look like they're doing their own thing and having a great time.
