Born in Manhattan, raised on Long Island, and art schooled in Brooklyn, Adam now resides in the beautiful Berkshires of western Massachusetts. His home is not-so-gradually being taken over by inspiring children's books of all genres. In his own writing and illustration for children Adam seeks to entertain and reassure while celebrating children's openness, unbridled imagination, exuberance in the everyday and embrace of mystery. He lives with his wife Monica and children Ezra and Iris. Adam's first picture book Me and Meow is scheduled for release by Harper Collins on their Fall 2011 list.
