I grew up among the computers and fog of Silicon Valley, where I now paint pictures and write the stories that pop into my head. I’m currently working on several projects including a picture book about a dragon obsessed boy and the birthday present he doesn’t want, a graphic novel involving an octopus’s unexpected trip to the local aquarium and a non-fiction novelty book about rocks.
I’m currently seeking representation and am available for commissions.
