Born and raised in Northern California near the ocean, I discovered a love for reading and storytelling at an early age. Following a desire to understand how the world works I got my undergraduate degree in Physics before deciding to turn my full attention to making stories, which led me to the Children’s Illustration program at Cambridge School of Art. 

I work primarily in traditional media and have a deep and abiding love for the unpredictable nature of watercolors.  When crafting my stories I’m always on the lookout for ways to incorporate humor, characters, emotional impact and a touch of the absurd.
