Hi I'm Dev!

I write picture books that make you laugh a lot and think a little, sometimes the reverse. 

I used to work in film effects as a painter. I worked on The Matrix movies and dozens of other film, TV, and game projects. Picture books are a different medium, but have a lot of similarities- they're sort of like little, paper movies when you think about it. I'm grateful I still get to be creative as a writer and find new ways to tell stories. 

I live in Berkeley, California right near where I grew up, with my husband, daughters, dogs, cat, and a snake named "Boots."

Thank you for visiting!

I'm represented by Jennifer Rofé of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency
