I’m an author and cartoonist with a head for organization and systems, abilities I’ve put to very good use as I’ve explored how to make creative work with less anxiety and more ease.
I work with creative pros (and serious non-pros) to get a clear, strategic view of their ambitious projects, and help them get through the woods and to that creative transformation that comes on the other side of finishing. The only way out is through. I love creating systems to get work done efficiently. I love collaboration, and its multiplier effect on creativity. The ivory tower has bars on the windows; it’s a prison. I’d rather be outside, working together.
One of my favorite ways to help people tell better stories, (and tell their stories better) is in person. I love connecting with large audiences from the stage, and relish getting in a small room with an intimate group and learning together about narrative, comics, and how to get the most out of visual (and non-visual) storytelling both as a reader and as a maker.
