About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Children's Book Illustrator
Location Long Beach, California, United States
Introduction I graduated from Cal State University Long Beach with a BFA in Illustration in 2005. I am the lucky author illustrator of the Moon and the Night Sweeper which was published in 2007 through Red Cygnet Press. I have also been one of SCBWI's Featured Artists and won the Illustrator Contest for "Cruisin'." I am always looking to get more of my work published in the children's book/magazine field to make a name for myself in that world. Please click on my photo for a link to my email address if you would like to contact me.
