Brief Summary
A geeky guy with a wife, 2 teens, 2 dogs, and a goatee. I drew shirts for I Can Has Cheezburger. I designed Bacon Salt. I work in Seattle as a designer for an automotive web company, and I am a freelance illustrator on the side. I've illustrated a children's book and a business book. And I heart Jesus.
