In the early 1990′s, he dropped out of art school to pursue comic book making, and first became known in 1995 for Storeyville, which was re-released in 2007 by Picturebox. He has also collaborated with Ben Jones on the comic series Cold Heat and released his solo project Pompei. He is also known for is ongoing comics correspondence course.
