I was born in Toronto, Canada, and grew up in London, England and Welland, Ontario. I've lived and worked in Dublin, London, and Seoul. After publishing my first comic books (Ojingogo and Jinchalo) with Drawn & Quarterly, I moved to LA and was lead designer on the tv show, Adventure Time for around 70 episodes (two seasons). 

Now, I live in Montreal where I'm a designer for TV animation and I make picture books and comic books.
