the literary cartoonist

Welcome to my website! I am an author and artist and I spent my early career sculpting superheroes and cartoon characters including for Nickelodeon, DC Comics, and Pixar. Winner of the Robert Olen Butler Prize for Fiction, my debut novel All We Had, was a finalist for the Massachusetts Book Award and is now a major motion picture from Tribeca films. In 2017, I received The Hamilton Life Achievement Award for individuals with dyslexia. In 2021, I was the inaugural fellow at New Yorker Cartoonist, James Stevenson’s Lost and Found Lab. Character sketches and stories from my  collection, “Odd Balls and Relationships,” appeared in the winter 2023/24 issue of Ploughshares Magazine. My work exploring the relationship between language and vision, visual art and literature has been published including in the New York Times and Publishers Weekly. My most recent endeavor is "Monster in a Dress" - an animated short about my journey with gender, sexuality, identity and personhood. Please enjoy exploring my work.
