I am a writer, illustrator, designer, and musician, among other things.
My books in particular give me the opportunity to do all the things I truly love to do — from the writing the words to typesetting them, to drawing the worlds I imagine. Music was my first love and I never left it behind, composing the soundtracks for each work.
But more than anything, I create these things for my kids. Maybe not directly, but because someday it will be all they have left. Through this work and every moment I cherish with them, I hope they'll not only remember me but also teach them to spread the same hope, resilience and joy to everyone they encounter.
I hope that it might inspire you to do the same.
