I write the web comic Ka-Ching, with art by Pat Guppy; you can find that at www.kachingcomic.com. Most recently, I co-wrote the upcoming feature film Saturday at the Starlightwhich should be released sometime in 2018.

I graduated from Macalester College in 2008 with a BA in both English and Theater.

I currently live in Los Angeles and work at a boutique literary management company in Beverly Hills.
