Introduction I'm an artist & a CANTANKEROUS NUT. Lived in VT since 1978 (Old North End-er!. I've been a Designer, fine artist, illustrator, public-access producer and film/videomaker at different stages of my life- Now indulging my dream- to create my own comic books.'has been a focus for me since i was a kid. Since 2005, I've been published in a few comics, Including pin-ups in B. Clay Moore's EXPATRIATE 2 and BATTLE HYMN 3 (Image comics) and with ETHAN SLAYTON, illustrated a 5 page backup story for BATTLE HYMN 5. I also have several comic proposals that I'm developing and hope to see them published in the next few years. i am an ape out of the jungle here in this fish tank of arteestas, freedom-lovers, wannabees, politicos, ne'r- do -well's, hippies, yippies, punks, wildmen, bees, trees, also-rans and genuine, cool talented folks we call VT. but i like it.
