about me

the first thing i ever wanted to be as a kid was a children’s book author and illustrator.  the second thing i wanted to do was start my own school and be a teacher.

then i realized art & design are great for communicating and trying to teach people things.  my love of books, learning, art, and design has only grown from there.
