About Me



I am an artist and writer based in Lincoln, Nebraska. I draw comics about lots of things: being trans, being a dad, contemplating the void, etc. I’m currently completing an illustrated memoir based on my comics titled FROM THE NECK UP. I do commissioned illustrations as well — contact me if you’re interested in a custom illustration.

I also write poems and scholarly essays. My debut full-length poetry collection, Opera on TV, is available now from The Operating System Press, and I’ve published poems in Denver Quarterly, Cincinnati Review, The Journal, SPECS, Hotel Amerika, and other journals. My scholarship on film, television, and literature appears in Camera Obscura: Feminism, Culture, and Media Studies; Quarterly Review of Film and Video; and Journal of Modern Literature.

In addition to drawing, writing, and wrangling my two kids, I teach poetry and critical theory in the Department of English at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Drop me a line to discuss a commission, book a reading or classroom visit, or just say hello!

Anything else? Oh yes, here’s a picture of me doing what I love most: reading in near proximity to a cat.
