What started out as a childhood passion for reading, has developed into my storytelling and illustrations. I’m a self-taught artist, with a background in children’s programming. I was bit by the travel bug as an 8 year-old while visiting my Peace Corps aunt in Antigua, and have been globetrotting ever since. I am influenced by the people that I meet, and the lands that I explore.
In addition to writing and illustrating books, I also write and implement educational curriculum for informal education settings (i.e. museums, libraries, zoos, etc.). If I’m not teaching a group of kids, or making books, you can find me out on the trails with my two pups, Brix and Ollie.
