Q.

Congrats

I loved your comic strip! Why do you think you won?
Q.

What's next?

How long have you been cartooning, and does this win inspire you to pursue it full-time after school?
Q.

Majors

You're a math and biophysics double major, so clearly that translates to "professional cartoonist," right?
Q.

Art classes?

Did you take any art classes growing up or have any sort of training, or did you just always like to draw?
Q.

Ideas

What is your artistic process? How do you come up with an idea? What inspires you?
Q.

Opportunities

The Flat Hat is a smaller (twice-weekly) newspaper. Do you think that that this made it easier for you to get in and break out, more so than at a bigger school or with a more intense newspaper?
Q.

Say something nice about TJHSST! And how marching band changed your life!
Q.

Parents

How have your parents influenced your work?
