I'm a children's Author, Illustrator, and Senior Product/Program Designer. I thrill at the challenge of building worlds, telling stories and finding ways to inspire/engage kids to see their world in a new way.
I've been fortunate to work for Jim Henson Productions, train as a special effects moldmaker, write and perform comedy, and design software, toys, accessories, apparel, and other consumer products for the children's market. In 2007, I created ScrapKins, a Recycled Arts program and IP that inspires kids to see the creative potential in everyday junk through hands-on STEAM based workshops and interactive building experiences. As a presenter/educator, I've shared Arts Enrichment programs with K-6 students at over 50 schools around the world and created content and workshops for Sesame Workshop, Whole Foods, Seventh Generation, The American Museum of Natural History, The Skirball Museum, NY Hall of Science, Maryland Science Center, Boston Children’s Museum, Maker Faire, and Scholastic Afterschool. http://www.Scrapkins.com
