Do you like to get weird, if so why and what do you do, if not why not?
I’m not that weird, but I’m pro-weird. I just do my thing.

Do you work in a studio / office / in the park?
I work in my studio office at home. It’s near a park.

Whats an average day in your life right now?
A dog walk, some coffee, some drawing, some emailing, coffee with bros, a mellow bike ride, a little yoga and some good cooking.

Optimist / Pessimist? Realist? Weirdest?

Do make a living off your art? How do you pay all your bar tabs?
Yep, I haven’t held down a real job in six years. Bar tabs aren’t my problem, it’s all the toys!

What does Gnu mean to you?
Good folks making sweet boards out of the good ol’ northwest.

Besides artmaking, what do you enjoy doing?
Working on projects at home, cooking, riding pow, sleeping outside, seeing new places.

What gets you out of bed in the morning, what inspires you?
Coffee, deadlines, and being thankful for being able to make art for a living.
