I work full time as a freelance children's illustrator. my work has appeared in over 100 client projects including magazines, educational books, mobile apps, and more. I live in Ontario, Canada, where you're likely to find me testing out the local slides with my wife and daughters. I'm also a ninja.

Presentation Description:
For high-school students I have an hour long interactive slide presentation about the entire process in writing, illustrating, and publishing a picture book. The students will have the opportunity to create characters and plot-lines on spot with integrated exercises.

I also have a half-hour presentation for ages 5-10 that consists of explaining what authors and illustrators do, a live reading, and live drawing.

I am in the process of developing a middle grade presentation, please inquire!
