I was born in Toronto and grew up in London, England. I've lived and worked in Dublin, London, and Seoul.

After publishing my first books (Ojingogo and Jinchalo) with Drawn & Quarterly, I moved to LA where I was Lead Designer on Adventure Time for Cartoon Network. 

Now I live in Montreal where I design for animation and I make picture books and comic books.
