It all began when my uncle gave me a book by cartoonist B. Kliban called Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head when I was a teenager which inspired me to want to do cartooning.

I volunteered for my college newspaper doing cartoons and won two awards for the best panel and strip divisions among other local colleges. I then volunteered for a local newspaper for a couple of years doing editorial/politically slanted cartoons despite it not being my forte.

When I was in college I walked down to the building that the Courier-Journal national newspaper was in and submitted a cartoon that I literally just worked on between classes. The next thing I know it was published the following morning! Since then I have been submitting to various national magazines in hopes of a callback but got nothing until the Funny Times offered me a payment contract.

I've been with the Funny Times for 3 years now. It's basically gas money but still feels good to see my work published considering they have about 7,000 readers. The ultimate goal is to get a contract offer w/a newspaper syndicate which I have been trying for the last 5 years but coming up short.

Now what would you call it if the person pushing back was yourself? That would be just the perfect depiction of me and my self-defeating tendencies XD
