Some of my greatest memories are of times reading to our four little boys when the house was finally quiet. I consider our children our greatest blessings and inspiration for my own stories – the kind that share love and life lessons in a simple way.
Other than having a family and creating books, I began my career as a graphic designer, which soon after, led to professional desktop video production. I'm also a video producer for a Christian organization. Through mission work, I've been able to travel internationally, meet amazing people from many cultures and share love with our brothers and sisters from around the world!
As a lover of outdoors, our family has enjoyed backcountry camping since forever. Our first trip was Boundary Waters just after I graduated with honors from UW-Madison with a B.A. in Journalism and emphasis in graphic design.
We've instilled the same love for adventure in our children, the grand sights and amazing experiences, as well as appreciation for the little things like an off trail meal of granola and jerky. By the way, food tastes best when you're eating outside, especially when it's food you've grown yourself!
We do lots of gardening on our property, vegetables, flowers and lots of things in-between. There's much to see and do in a garden – all creative substance for "I Like Frogs and Flowers". I hope you enjoy reading it with your child, grandchild, or a special "little" in your life.
