I was born and raised in rural Minnesota. My passion lies in telling stories and creating accompanying illustrations. This has led me to major in illustration and minor in creative writing. Currently, I am in my senior year at Minnesota State University Moorhead and will graduate in spring 2016 with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. I intend on pursuing the field of children's literature and illustration after graduating.

When I am not writing silly stories or drawing goofy characters, I can be found reading copious books, drinking too much coffee, or getting lost in nature.
