I am an illustrator, educator, and art director based in Providence, Rhode Island, and am currently working on NOSTALGIA, a middle grade graphic novel set in a magical antique shop.
I am also an Assistant Professor in the Illustration Department at RISD – my alma mater where I earned a BFA in Illustration – along with being a Teaching Artist here at Art Prof. Previously, I was an Associate Art Director at Airbnb.
I am most passionate about creating comic stories. They are a perfect mix of my two passions – art and literature.
I find inspiration for my stories everywhere, from odd trinkets in antique shops to how peaceful I feel by a lakeside under an open midday sky.
I am most drawn to stories about people – I believe it is a blessing, out of all the people in the world, to meet one person and to learn their story.
