I started political cartooning back in college for the Eastern Echo at Eastern Michigan University. My first professional gig was at the Macomb Daily and then the Grosse Pointe News. My biggest influence was Draper Hill who was the Detroit News cartoonist from the 1970's thru the 90's. I am published in the Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year, by Charles Brooks. Aside from cartooning I am also an independent animator, and my work has been seen on MTV, PBS, IFC, Tech TV and festivals all over.
