About Me


Here's the deal.

I do a few things.

I'm an urban artist, and I teach my personal blend of Zen practice and urban sketching. Many of my sketches are here. You can see nearly everything I draw on Instagram. The cream of the crop are available on Threadless.

I'm a science writer. You can also read some of my stories on Medium. Many of my stories are based on work I do as a citizen scientist with the Presidio here in San Francisco. I do habitat restoration, everything from pulling weeds to transplanting freshwater mussels.

And I started a company: Big Stick Charcoal. I took a life drawing class, and was disappointed with available drawing charcoal. So I partnered with a woodworker and another artist, and created Big Stick Charcoal. We make a premium drawing charcoal for artists, duplicating the velvety black strokes of vine charcoal in a bigger, better stick.
