At some point relatively before around the Renaissance, words became important. Not important in the make a grunting sound so we know the neighborhood sabertooth is on the prowl, but as a means to mass communicate education and the human experience across a host of media.

With that reality ingrained in my head, I embarked on a career of magazine journalism in my late teens, earning two degrees from Ohio University—one in journalism, the other in international marketing. Publishing collaborators include Paste Magazine (where I also serve as an editor), The Atlantic, NPR, Playboy and +Soma, a gorgeous art museum that used to release in Brazil. I’ve also helped out a slew of companies articulate their value through branding campaigns. Last but not least, I have an art book on the Emmy-winning Cartoon Network miniseries Over the Garden Wall from Dark Horse and a novel set to publish in 2019.
