I am an author/illustrator in Portland, Oregon.  I grew up in Southern California playing in the waves and dreaming up stories everywhere I went.  I studied illustration at Cal State Fullerton before moving to Oregon, where I've learned to trade the waves for pine trees and rivers.  I still draw much of my inspiration from the world around me and love spending time outdoors whether it's on a hike or just playing with my dog, Scout.  Wherever I am, you will likely find me with a sketchpad and pencil in hand.
