I am a freelance illustrator, originally from Phoenix, AZ. I received my MFA from the School of Visual Arts after studying visual communication at the University of Arizona. The majority of my free time is spent drawing or looking at things I want to draw. My other interests include boxing, Korean food, Brazilian football in the 80's, all you can eat sushi, and Arsenal. Some fun facts about myself: I was born in Rome and named after Pope John Paul II, I spend way too much time looking at football boots online, and I can ollie.
