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. My favorite meal is breakfast! I love how breakfast can combine sweet and savory and spicy all on one plate— or even inside of a single sandwich!
