Esmeralda Dragon works the spotlight at the Metropolitan Ballet, but what she really wants to do is dance. Encouraged by her friend Harold to audition, Esmeralda takes a leap of faith only to discover that she doesn’t quite fit in with the other ballerinas. But Esmerelda isn’t ready to give up–and neither is Harold! Dragons Don’t Dance Ballet is a whimsical picture book that challenges body image expectations and encourages little ones to go for their dreams.

It is with much excitement and anticipation that I announce that two books I have illustrated will be published in the near future in 2020.
I previously worked as a graphic artist in the apparel industry creating numerous pieces of art and designs that were printed on top selling pieces of children's clothing sold through major retailers such as Walmart, Macy's, The Children's Place, and Target.
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest near Seattle, Washington with my wife and two children.
