I came from a humble home in Santa Maria, California. My love for art came from countless hours of reading comics and children's books and Saturday morning cartoons.
I am a recent graduate of the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California. I received my BFA in Visual Development, focusing on character and prop design but decided to jump into the Children's Book world my last semester of college.
I am an agented Children's Book Illustrator by Lupine Grove Creative, I have done freelance work for some animation studios around the Bay area and am finishing my first children's book, Irving Berlin, getting ready to jump on my second one.
I believe in focusing on the beauty of simplistic design that evokes emotion and begs for life by using uniquely stylized and energetic art.
