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 came out in 2014. Next up, "Romping Stomping Dinosaurs" in Fall, 2015!

Before writing and illustrating children’s books, I worked as an animator/designer on fun shows like Courage the Cowardly Dog, Sheep in the Big City, and Word Girl. I'm proud to work with exciting clients like Cartoon Network, Fablevision, Greenwillow Books, Highlights, LeapFrog, NickToons, Oxford University Press, PBS Kids, Ranger Rick, Scholastic, Sesame Street Workshop, Sourcebooks, Stone Arch Books, Weston Woods, and Zonderkidz.

Currently I teach Children's Book Illustration at Montserrat College of Art.
