I’m day100an illustrator, writer and award-winning 2D animator who likes science, bright colors, drawing on photos and figuring out how things work.

After a number of years in science museum education and non-profit administration, I was lured back to school by the magic of making drawings come to life.  I earned an MFA in 2D Animation from the Academy of Art University and my thesis film, “The Search for the Monster of Lake Quannapowitt”, won Best Animation for Kids at Animation Block Party 2015.  I try to pack all the dynamic energy of animation into each of my illustrations.

My first three books will be published in 2018:

The Breaking News (Roaring Brook/Macmillan), April 2018


Pet the Pets (Little Simon/Simon & Schuster), August 2018

Allie All Along (Sterling), Fall 2018
