I spent many years as an animator prior to beginning my illustration career, and have worked at Electronic Arts, as well as with several clients on a freelance basis.

I do an interactive presentation of my book, ROAR!, which is best suited for kids from preschool to 1st grade. I have done presentations as short as 15 minutes, especially suitable for the youngest kids, or one that runs closer to 30 or 40 minutes, which can include a craft element. I am both an author and an illustrator. If the presentation isn't within driving distance, I would charge for travel expenses.
