I’ve loved drawing all my life but I started doing it as a profession kind of by accident. I grew up in Southern California and went to San Diego State University. During the summers I worked as a tour guide at Universal Studios, what a great job! And I met some really good friends while I was there. I was an actor in Los Angeles for a while doing plays, some TV and a few commercials. I was even on some soap operas. It was during this time that I met my awesome wife Vicki in Newport Beach. After we got married we moved to the northwest. We love it here. We have a beautiful daughter, Christie and a black and white Rescue cat- Gracie.
When we moved, I couldn’t find a full time job so I started drawing for ads and TV and clients around town. Then God got me hooked up with Harvest House publishers and my writing and illustrating career took off. Since then I’ve gotten to work with some really great people like Focus on the Family, World Vision, The Los Angeles Times, The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the Charlotte Hornets.
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Jeremiah 29:11- “I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for good and not for evil to give you a future and a hope.”
I know that’s been true for me and I know it’ll be true for you too. I hope you enjoy this site and learn some stuff from it. We’ll keep adding new features all the time so make sure you keep coming back and visiting.
