I write middle-grade chapter books for kids ages 8-12 that explore themes of courage, family, friendship, imagination, and responsibility. My stories also feature elements of mystery, suspense, history, and magic. I have created, developed, written, and published three children's books. My titles include BERNARD JONES IS GOING PLACES, ELITE SQUAD, and THE HOOP KID FROM ELMDALE PARK.
I'm also a seasoned graphic designer with over 20 years of marketing and branding design experience. Before following my passion for writing children’s books, I designed licensed apparel, logo identities, and digital marketing graphics for well-known sports brands and events like Nike, ESPN, and X Games. I'm currently a Senior Designer with the nations leading 'Food & Ag' consulting and accounting firm. And when I'm not writing or designing, I enjoy being outdoors with nature, hiking local trails, listening to music, book shopping, and watching movies.
