I am an illustrator, cartoonist and writer who grows a beard because fighting the beard growth is more effort than embracing it. I was always taught to pick your battles – shaving was not one of them.

I am educated in mathematics and physics, though the only people that seem to appreciate that in a guy are financiers. And I hate finance. So I returned to my first loves of drawing and writing, but never forgot the joy of non-linear, two-dimensional dynamical systems. I mean, who could?

I wrote a book. I'm writing another book. Writing keeps me sane.

I forgot how to paint. I used to be pretty good at it; my old high school still has one of my paintings on the wall. I will re-teach myself someday, but it's pen and ink for now.
