About the Author
Kevin grew up in Thousand Oaks, California with his (great!) parents, an older brother to play & bicker with, and a fluffy white dog named Snowflake. For most of his childhood, he was obsessed with Lego, hermit crabs, and board games. Originally, he wanted to be a marine biologist, but then art began to play a larger and larger role in his life. He majored in both biology and illustration at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri — just in case one of them did not work out – but by the time he graduated, he only wanted to be an artist. After college, he worked at a stationery and giftware company called Michel & Company for several years before going out on his own as a full-time freelancer. In addition to writing/illustrating picture books, he still creates greeting cards, stationery and giftware products.
