I was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Shortly after high school I headed across the country to study art and design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Since receiving my Bachelor of Fine Arts I've been designing books for many prestigious publishing companies including HarperCollins, North South Books, Flashkids Books, and Harcourt Trade Publishers. I am currently the Art Director of Square Fish Books at Macmillan Children's Publishing Group.
