I’ve always been drawing, but I started making comics in middle school, circa 2001. In highschool, instead of doing my work in computer class I messed around in Macromedia Flash, it became the art program I am most comfortable with so I used it to draw more comics.
I always wanted to make cartoons but I was too impatient to do frame by frame animation. I think I eventually gained the patience after playing an awful MMORPG for 6 months nonstop. Eventually, I started animating seriously in 2012. I’m a perfectionist and didn’t feel confident enough to animate my original ideas, but I figured if I made mediocre fan cartoons and video game parodies I’d slowly learn and gain a following. My plan worked, because my first parody made it to the front page of Reddit, after a few more cartoons Machinima and Maker reached out to me.
Then one day, at a BBQ in Colorado I bumped into Butch Hartman (of Fairly Oddparents game) we became friends, and a few months later I started working for him!
