I am a children's writer, editor, illustrator, and educational professional with experience in educational publishing, specifically for young children. I have a Ph.D in Urban Education, with a specialized background in child development and learning. Over my career, I have partnered with publishers like Learning Horizons, Sesame Workshop, Intuary, Nick Jr., LeapFrog, Red Apple Reading, IMSAFE, and Encyclopaedia Britannica. I have written and published original, creative, educational content for various products, including online math, language, and science programs, and retail based phonics content and early readers. Additionally, I have worked with school-aged children in various capacities, so I know how they develop, what they enjoy, and how to engage them so they will become life-long learners.
