I worked for ten years at a small multi-media company in Los Angeles as a website programmer, website designer and 3D animator. I became a freelance worker when the company closed and, finally finding some free time, returned to my long-time dream of writing and illustrating my own stories.
In addition to continuing to work as a freelancer, I am also happy to volunteer as the Webmaster for SCBWI’s Los Angeles Region.
