Lonnie grew up doodling in class and reading comics outside of class. By the time he went to college, he thought he wanted to work in video game design. But after spending some time at the University of Advancing Technology, he realized it wasn't a great idea for him to pursue a job in that industry right out of college. Instead, he went with graphic design, which led to user experience design, which is now his day job.

Though he always knew he loved drawing, he didn't realize how much he liked telling stories (and that he could combine those two passions) until he went back to school for a year and a half at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. This comic wouldn't exist if not for his time at SVA.

He hopes that some day in the future, he might be able to spend most of his time drawing, and not in an office; he thinks that'd be swell.
