I like to make art. Sometimes I write stuff. Once in awhile, someone hands me a microphone and I talk about the art I like to make and the stuff I sometimes write.

I live with degenerative neurological disease bullshit and a side order of intractable epilepsy. It’s pretty goddamned horrible, but that’s only one part of me. All the other parts are amazing and/or hilarious.

I travel with a direwolf named Genevieve.

You can buy some of the stuff I make by visiting my Etsy shop. Go ahead, snoop around.



Here are some links to some old-ass articles, blog posts, and yakety-schmakety about some of the shit I did before my brain decided to completely shit its pants on a regular basis.
