About me

Photo by Terri Baskin

I'm a cartoonist from Richmond Virginia working in comics literary publishing and animation. I love to create adventure fantasy, soft sci fi, and slice of life stories about people of color. I'm currently illustrating the book series Bright Family (Epic!) and in production of my first graphic novel Grip Up! (Iron Circus Comics) coming in 2022.
