I am an author-illustrator based in Los Angeles, California with my college sweetheart, young son and old yorkie. I love making funny pictures that capture a childlike optimism mixed with a sprinkle of magic. My picture book dummy, "Bird and Dog," received an honorable mention from PB Party 2023. I am a member of SCBWI, Julie Hedlund's 12x12 picture book and two author-illustrator critique groups that meet weekly. I am also an award-winning artist whose paintings have been featured in juried art shows and I am a proud member of Women Painters West.
My background in comedy writing includes being a sketch writer on a house team for the famous Upright Citizens Brigade and being featured on Funny or Die and HuffPost.
