Visual creative.

Drawing since I could hold a pencil, I have been filling hundreds of sketchbooks with characters, stories and observations from my daily life. As a parent, I make daily drawings for my children’s lunchboxes, ideally bringing inspiration and humor to each day.

Please scroll down through some noteworthy and professional milestones that have brought me to where I am today. You can’t forget my educational background and please check out LinkedIn, if you are looking for that sort of thing.

Thank you for visiting my site and please reach out to me with any questions, comments or to just say hello.
