i value curiosity, play, and hard work to bring out the best in every project. my collaborations in children's book publishing have spanned 13+ years. i earned a bfa in printmaking/book arts from uarts in philly and a post-bac in graphic design from mica in baltimore. when i'm not creating, i can be found wandering wooded trails or exploring city wonders. most days, my artful life takes place in delaware with my wife and black labrador, Annie.
