Picture Book Author, Photojournalist & Filmmaker
Walter has at various points been a photojournalist, a filmmaker, a video producer, and most recently a picture book author. His artistic talent was discovered at a young age when his mother found him hunched over a note pad laboriously reproducing Tony the Tiger off a cereal box. His primary interests are telling stories and making pictures, and he is happiest when the two align.
Walter’s mentor is David Soman.
“Grown” is a children’s picture book about a young boy whose determination to attain the responsibilities of adulthood is tested when he meets a spirited girl who just wants to play. It was produced for the Digital Short Story project.
