I was born and raised in Massachusetts where I spent my childhood reading comic books, playing action figures, drawing superheroes, and participating in all things nerdy (before that became cool).

I graduated magna cum laude from Brandeis University and moved to Los Angeles, where I became a hand model. I even played Jessica Alba’s hands once... 

When I'm not pretending to be famous people’s hands, I'm creating art and literature for children. The rest of the time I spend with my husband and son, chasing away the ducks that prefer our pool to the LA River.

My debut picture book This is a Sea Cow (Albert Whitman) comes out Fall 2019! Stay tuned!
