I grew up in Fairfax, Virginia. I went to Rhode Island School of Design and graduated with a B.F.A. in Illustration. I spent my junior year in Rome, Italy for Honors Study. This is where I learned how to draw in a sketchbook and since then, I often have one with me.

I spent 10 years in Cleveland, Ohio working for American Greetings as an artist and writer. I relocated to Pennsylvania and received an M.A.T. in Art  Teaching at Mount St. Mary's University.
