On July 20th, 2016 my daughter Echo was born. Now everything is different, including the drive I have to create. I want to show her how she can create her own world with art, and that it can be one of the greatest tools to exploring, pushing personal boundaries, coping with the hard stuff, and making lives more colorful! When I had the idea for MMM...Monsters, a series of STEAM/STEM activity books, I hoped one day to share them with my kid. Now that she's here, I cannot wait to make that a reality.
