I’m a Graphic Designer, Illustrator, and Art Director living in Brooklyn, NY. I mostly gravitate toward Children’s Book design and illustration, but love any creative work that tells a story and connects emotionally—be it a person’s life or career, a fictional character, a time period, or place. I’m really excited about exploring creative storytelling through new mediums such as story apps and enhanced e-books. I’m also a film and travel fanatic—two influences that surely find their way into my work.

I was raised in rural Western MA, the oldest of 5 kids. At 18, I moved to New York to study design and illustration at Pratt Institute. I entered the world of Children’s Book Publishing upon graduation, starting as an Art Department Assistant at G.P. Putnam’s Sons and Philomel Books. As I made my way up the ladder there, I benefitted from the expertise of some wonderful mentors. I am currently the Art Director at Amazon Children’s Publishing.
