I'm a cartoonist from Richmond Virginia working in publishing and animation. I love to create adventure fantasy, soft sci fi, and slice of life stories about people of color.  Currently the illustrator for the book series Bright Family on the Epic app, and my debut graphic novel Grip Up! coming from Iron Circus in 2022.
