An attorney writing about the law during the day; at night I write, draw, and podcast in a tiny log cabin in the Santa Cruz Mountains where I live with a woman, two cats, two goats, and a hound.
I grew up in New Hampshire where my parents' love of the outdoors and our proximity of the local public library gave me my two most enduring interests; the natural world and the written word.
I have, at various times, lived in West Africa among the tribesmen of the Sahel, bummed around Paris, Amsterdam, and New York. I've met art forgers, smugglers, murderers, drug dealers, gang members, and counterfeiters.
I represented detained immigrants held in federal detention facilities in the middle of the Everglade swamps, worked in the secure ward of an insane asylum in New Hampshire, and studied Shakespeare at Oxford.
Virtually all of the work I do, artistic or otherwise, seeks to explore the inherent subjectivity of narratives. My work and personal aesthetic inclination finds beauty in the way a rough finish exposes process and captures the immediacy of creation.
I frequently collaborate with my brother. Our book "Frown" is a 40 page story about depression, betrayal and performance. We are founding members of Mystery School Comics Group, which publishes anthology comics.
