Writer. Artist. Fearless.
I am a 32 year old creator who has been passionate about writing and art since I could barely hold a pencil.
Born in New York City, I moved to Miami Florida when I was three. My father wrote for soap operas, including All My Children and Guiding Light, for many years. Sitting down in front of a computer to type for six to ten hours seemed perfectly normal as a child.
I was also exposed to a huge variety of cultures because my parents opened the Pelican Playhouse, a theater company in a little city called Miami Springs. It was my creative playground from age 10 onward. My love for the arts has only grown with me.
In 2008, I embarked for MCAD (Minneapolis College of Art and Design) only to complete the four year art school in three years.
Once that was done, it was on to more book writing and I haven’t stopped since. I have regularly attended regional conferences for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators since 2011. I enjoy nature, especially during the winter, and I now live in Austria with my amazing wife and our cats.
Thank you for coming.
