A couple of weeks ago was the 20th Anniversary of J.K. Rowlings beloved children’s series, Harry Potter. As a diehard Potterhead, this was my little tribute to the books and a nod to J.K. Rowling, for creating some of the best stories I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading and living. <3read more
The Best Dad always has the same top qualities... What makes a "best dad," really? Simply put, I feel that a "best dad" is: (1) a provider, (2) a protector, (3) a teacher, and (4) a big old softy at heart. To me, a dad is a dad whether his children have two legs or...read more

Tripping over life and pretending it is on purpose.
Welcome to my little web comic, SociallyAwkward. If you are a
glutton for punishment repeat visitor – glad to have you back! Otherwise, if you’ve never been here before – thanks for coming!
So what exactly is SociallyAwkward?
SociallyAwkward is the amalgamation of a few things. First, I thought it would be fun to create a visual representation of fun little moments in my life. Second, I wanted to push myself to find the humor in small things in my life – mainly as an exercise to help with my anxiety. You know… focus on small things instead of getting overwhelmed by the big picture.
I’ll be honest. I have a hard time creating humor. I appreciate funny things but I’ve never thought of myself (or my life) as particularly hilarious. Through this little exercise, however, I’ve found out that lots of those fun little moments in my life are fun, funny, and worth sharing. Those moments really seem to resonate with people, so I’ve decided to keep up the project and continue my comic.
You will notice that my style has changed since the inception of the SociallyAwkward web comic. That is because, as an artist, I am continually growing and expanding my skill set. I appreciate your patience as I find my groove and settle on a design for Socially Awkward that I think best represents the content of this series and my own artistic style.
