I’m an artist and a biology M.S. student living in the Eastern US. When I was a kid I thought I was an alien cat inside a fleshy body, and things haven't changed too much. In general I think I'd look better without a human face.

As a kid I was playing Neopets, watching Naruto, pretending Pokemon was real, and getting up to no good online. Virtual pet sites led me to Proboards roleplay forums and adoptables, and I was eventually (also with help from Furcadia) introduced to furry fandom. The rest is history. I never stopped liking anime/manga, either. Over the course of my internet life I've jumped into many different fan-bases, mainly anime ones, and have been involved in a variety of fandom and non-fandom personal projects on the web.

I first delved into digital art around 2008 and got my first tablet a few years later. I love drawing monsters and furries, and using art to explore weird shit. When I'm not drawing or writing, my "day job" as a student is botany-oriented.
