I am an illustrator and cartoonist living in Brooklyn, NY.  I grew up in Calgary, Alberta and graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2003.  Currently I teach in the illustration Department of the School of Visual Arts.

My two books of personal work are Gilded Lilies (2006) and Indoor Voice (2010). My cousin, writer Mariko Tamaki, and I are the co-creators of the graphic novel SKIM (2008); we are currently working on a new graphic novel project, This One Summer (2014).
