3 Fun Facts
1. My hair has been pink, purple, blue, black, red, and green… but it’s naturally brown.
2. I didn’t always want to be a cartoonist. Growing up, I wanted to be a paranormal investigator with a specialty in ghosts and aliens… and, presumably, ghosts of aliens.
3. I really like Scooby-Doo. My dream job would be writing and illustrating a Scooby-Doo graphic novel.
