I write and draw comics and cartoons whenever possible, and, I plan to one day create picture books. I do the majority of my work in pen and ink, and periodically participate in challenges to level up my skills.

I’m inspired everyday by my very supportive wife and our four kids, my most important venture.
My first child was a beagle mix puppy named SADIE. She was with me through a lot. I miss her.

Miscellaneous Items:

Why do you spell “Jae” like that? I had/have a crush on the art of Jae Lee. One day, when I was approaching my teenage years, I declared to my mom that I wanted to change the spelling of nickname. It’s stuck ever since.

The Pivot Questionnaire: We all know about “Inside the Actor’s Studio” with James Lipton, and the ten legendary questions he would ask originally from a French series, “Bouillon de Culture” hosted by Bernard Pivot. I share my answers here.
