Newburyport MA

I’m an author/illustrator specializing in silly stories and funny drawings for kids (and immature adults). I live in Newburyport, MA with my beautiful girls, Karen, Mirabelle and Chloé. My first trade picture book, Even Monsters comes out in Spring 2014. Before writing and illustrating children’s books, I worked as an animator/designer in NYC. I've worked on fun shows like Courage the Cowardly Dog and Sheep in the Big City. I'm proud to work with exciting clients like Bubblicious, Cartoon Network, Fablevision, 4Kids TV, Greenwillow Books, Highlights, LeapFrog, NickToons, Oxford University Press, PBS Kids, Ranger Rick Jr, Scholastic, Sesame Street Workshop, Sourcebooks, Stone Arch Books, and Zonderkidz.
