I do Presentations and Workshops!


"His truly engaging presentations
keep the audience laughing as he shares his work
and creative process." Melanie Roy, Librarian

 


"The students all felt like cartoonists
and drew for days after his talk!"

Mark Parisi


I've drawn the syndicated cartoon, "Off the Mark" that appears in newspapers for over 30 years, and now I'm also a middle-grade author for the HarperCollins chapter book series, "Marty Pants".  

One of my favorite things to do is share what I've learned, and I think the best way to learn is through fun and laughter. 

Lessons include: embrace your individuality, and don't give up. 

I can even craft each presentation to your specific audience.
