Through illustration and comics I explore personal investigations and commemorations into grief and memories, the humor of everyday narratives, and issues of identity and family. I often work off of my own poetry, physical diaries, and digital record-keeping. I’m interested in collaging and preserving daily moments, managing my passionate love affair with the internet, and—despite what my resting sad face would have you think—making people laugh.
