Hi. I am an author, a cartoonist and a screenwriter.  

I also really like a good chocolate chip cookie.

I’ve been making up stuff since I was a kid when telling a good fib and making up a story were almost the same thing. I grew up on a dead end street in Worcester, MA where all the kids stayed out until the streetlights came on.

I always loved books and reading and spent lunch hours in my school library looking for my next adventure.

I’ve lived in New England, Puerto Rico, Florida and California and not only do I write books but I’ve created and written lots of children’s TV shows.


I went to college twice. I have a Masters degree in Education from Harvard and am the only person with a Bachelor’s degree in “Cartoon-Communication Education”. 

I now live in Montreal with my wife where they have the best bagels in the world.
