How I Got Here
After graduating college in 1996, I worked in corporate marketing and PR, then I left to become a freelance writer specializing in employee communications. Around this time, I also started sending greeting card ideas to Recycled Paper Greetings, and was elated when they wanted to produce them. The corporate writing was my main job, and I did the cards on the side.
Then a couple years (and two kids) later, a friend called me and asked, “Do you want to partner on a book? It’s going to be called ‘If These Boobs Could Talk.'” Once I confirmed that the book was about breastfeeding I was IN.
After “the boob book” (that’s what my kids call it), my friend and I co-wrote two more humor/parenting books (links below), and I did all the illustrations. Those books led to a four-year job cartooning for Nickelodeon’s NickMom website. It was pretty awesome.
When NickMom ended its run in 2015, I turned my attention to my own website and started posting cartoons every weekday. And here we are!
I still freelance write and create cartoons for companies, and I’m still making greeting cards for Recycled Paper Greetings. And of course, I’m posting new material here all the time! I’m glad you found my site. Stick around! Let’s have some fun.
