I create books for children. And I lead a family of digital health agencies.

About Me

I write and illustrate books for children, often with a climate theme tucked into their pages. Those books are published throughout the world — from Poland to Portugal, Slovenia to South Korea, Germany to Japan. I have the great fortune of collaborating with television producers from time to time, something I hope to do more of in the near future.

I also combine design, creativity, and strategy to solve business, brand, and experience problems for my clients and for myself. I have worked with many of the world's premier brands, in a range of sectors, and I have founded or helped to found a number of businesses — some successful, some not. In recent years, I have chosen to focus my energies on one of America's most vexing challenges: healthcare. I currently run a family of digital health agencies which partner with leading healthcare companies to bring novel solutions to market.

I live in Minnesota with my family and spend my free time relaxing with a cup of coffee, reading, and playing soccer.
