By day, I’m a designer at Jonathan Schloss / Architect. By night, I play music and draw for Sad American Night, a band that doubles as a visual art project. In addition to my own band, I create artwork (posters, albums, t-shirts, etc.) for a number of other local musicians and organizations.

My illustrations draw on a strange reservoir of childhood memories, constant exploration of Kansas City and New York, mythology and anthropology uncovered in dusty library books, travel, a lifelong fascination with architecture and place-making, and perhaps most importantly, the storytelling and wonder inherent to the music that inspires my drawings.
