My creative background includes performing as a jazz vocalist, followed by a career as a writer for children's television and family feature films (Hanna/Barbera, Marvel, Jim Henson, Warner Bros., Disney, and more). My colorful geometric pen-and-ink and digital drawings reflect my love of music and the design sensibility of traditional animation. I hope they make you feel like dancing!
