Born on Good Friday in the Midwest, I grew up surrounded by forests and animals and thunderstorms that split the sky. Practically a wild-child, I survived mainly by crafting weapons out of sticks, making up characters to be my comrades, and adhering to a strict diet of cookies. After I grew up a little I relocated to New England to study illustration at RISD:CE. But not much else has changed.
I have been writing for nine years, and creating art for about as long. My focus is on speculative fiction and illustrations that explore themes of community/relationships, self-exploration, dry humor, and a fascination for the natural world. To learn more about my storytelling projects and novels, visit my website.
Small talk kills me. I'll take my coffee black, thanks. Yes, the hair is real.
Aside from 'Red' and 'BamBam', 'Little Lethal' is a nickname I picked up at work. This one was due to my habit of carrying utility knives in my belt (hey, they're handy) and enjoying going to shooting ranges.

Crafted entirely by hand, THE BANNER AND BATTLE CRY measures 9" x 13" and is made of 100% acid free, archival materials for longevity of color and quality. It would look stunning displayed in a shadowbox or deep-profile frame.
