ABOUT More than just a beard!

In short I'm a comic book writer/artist, digital media producer and amateur beard-growing aficionado. I began spitefully making comics while attending the University of Toronto after the comics in the school’s newspaper were so bad I shouted, “I could make a better comic!”  Well I did (or at least I hope I did. They were terrible!) and I have been ever since. See?  Spite, it’s a powerful motivator! Since then I've done work for Scientific American, Science Rendezvous, Corus Radio Canada, Harvard University, Comedy Central and numerous comic book publishers.  Currently I'm the house artist for Chemicals Are You Friends website and publishing the comic Pieces of Eights, a pirate themed, fantasy adventure-comedy. That’s right, PIRATE MAGIC! Everything I do can be found here. Except for my cooking and my beard.  Both must be experienced in person.

This page is still being worked on but when it’s up and running it will be the home to my reviews, ramblings and sketches.
Kind of like an online creativity lab.
