I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and have been writing stories and sharing them with other children for as long as I can remember. After graduating from Penn State University with a degree in film, I moved to Brooklyn, New York.
I've been writing professionally since 2003, when I was awarded the Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Since then, I've written for Walt Disney Studios. I've also earned a variety of television producing credits.
Inspired by my work at Disney and the bottomless imagination of my children, I've moved my focus back to storytelling for the younger crowd.
I write from Brooklyn, where I live with my family and an endless supply of ideas.
