Educated internationally, his career began as a cartoonist in Japan in 1994, and has since found focus largely in print media. He maintains a small graphic design studio, Typografika (Visual Communication und Konditorei, formerly ¡ü16.øäk!). His work has been published and exhibited internationally and he has also received recognition for his very, very silly short films.
