Welcome to my Website

Thanks for visiting!

Here you can find some general information about the work I do in the areas of children's literature, art, and entertainment.

Among my many projects are teaching cartooning workshops to kids and writing and illustrating for books and magazines. Scroll down this page to find out more.

Watch for a more comprehensive version of this website coming soon.





I teach cartooning workshops to children in several school districts around metro Detroit, including Bloomfield Hills, West Bloomfield, Birmingham, Farmington, Walled Lake, Clarkston, Troy, Lake Orion, Warren, South Lyon, Plymouth-Canton, Brighton, and other areas. My workshops are usually held after school and are generally for kids in elementary school. Students with no experience can learn how to draw cool cartoons in just one day!

Since, in most cases, a portion of the proceeds from every workshop goes directly to the school or district, my classes have helped earn thousands of dollars for art supplies, library books, playground equipment, PTA programs, and other enrichment activities.

Over 100,000 students have enrolled in my workshops so far!
