I am an illustrator and writer living in Taos, New Mexico. I studied digital art in college which led me to a career in software. As a software designer I take complex problems and make them simple.I am an avid outdoor adventurist. I spend my time skiing in the mountains, or fly fishing streams and rivers. The stories I create are focused on inspiring children, and especially young girls, to enjoy the outdoors. Combining my professional skills and my outdoor experience, I weave together complex themes into fictional educational books for children.
