Hello. I'm Kurt, a graphic novelist and painter living in Salem, Massachusetts. 

My comics have been described as "existentialist" and compared to the current work of David Mazzucchelli by the talented comic artist Gene Ha. I've studied under Frank Santoro, creator of Storeyville and Pompeii. Since coming back to work on comics in 2014, I've released Saltwater Snow, A Bomb, E, Dark Desert Dawn, and my debut graphic novel, In Pieces: Someplace Which I Call Home. I wrote and drew The Santoro School Handbook for Making Better Comics under the editorial direction of Frank Santoro, and then it went viral on Tumblr (RIP). I've had my work in comics recognized by the New England Book Show, PEN AmericaComics Workbook, the Society of Illustrators, comics anthology Ink Brick, The Comics Journal, and Best American Comics.

I know that everyone is stretched thin, but even small patronages add up to big support for artists like me, and I hope to provide you with more than you put in. I'm humbled and grateful for every person that decides that my work is worthy of support, so THANK YOU!
