Originally from North Bay, I completed a BA in English at Nipissing University before moving to Toronto in 2004 to obtain my Honours BFA at York University. While working and attending York,
I also studied comic book illustration at Max the Mutt and through an independent group led by Canadian comics great Ty Templeton.

In 2015, I relocated to the Muskoka area, and am currently based in Bala, Ontario. When I am not creating, I am operating a seasonal gift shop, and filling my free time (what there is of it) with horse back riding, hiking, running, and exploring.

Throughout my life, I have tried my hand in almost every area of the arts, including acting, singing, set design, costume design, sculpting, playing piano, and writing. Drawing, painting, and
mask-making have now become my main (if never completely exclusive) areas of focus, and I am driven to produce and improve in my skills, every day, by the pure love of it. There is nothing else I would rather be doing.
