Welcome visual storytellers!
With my professional and educational backgrounds in writing, editing, design, art, & theater, I’m uniquely experienced to edit comics, graphic novels, and illustrated works.
Since 2009, I’ve interned for a Marvel Comics editor; have been mentored by comics editors, Hollywood story consultants, and visual development artists; and have worked with different artists and writers on every developmental stage of visual storytelling. Whether you’re writing the script, thumbnailing layouts, penciling, inking, lettering, or proofing, I’d love to work with you!

TERMS & CONDITIONS:
I use PayPal for invoices and payments, and I require an $8 minimum credit. Credits do not expire and are transferrable. However, their value might change when my prices increase. For example, if you need only four panels critiqued ($2), you can cash in up to 12 more for no additional price in 2017, but when prices increase in 2018, your $6 remaining credit might cover 10 panels.
