For as long as I can remember I've escaped everyday life through stories. Whether picture books, comics, cartoons, or novels, I was always captivated by a good tale. I would spend long days and nights drawing until I leveled up to be a storyteller myself.

Now, I’m an illustrator wanting to enchant kids with the same kind of stories that sparked my adventure. I draw for the spectrum of children’s publishing and I'm always excited to work on new projects with new people.

I live in Rhode Island with my wife and two energy vampires called "our kids."

Feel free to contact me directly for inquiries.


Let's work together!

Contact me – I love to work on new creative collaborations,
hear your ideas, and especially if
you'd like to hire me.
