    As told to Comic Foundry…
    Well, I’ve always read and loved comic books, but it was really only until the past couple years that I actually paid attention to what I
    was reading. Before that, I’d go for anything and everything, no matter how bad it was. I was just so in love with the medium itself,
    that it really didn’t matter about the content. I’m a little more discriminating now, but not much.

    With this love of comic books, came a love of creating them, which is basically the only career I’d ever entertained notions of having.
    I’ll be graduating college in a couple short months with a degree in illustration and a minor in creative writing. And although I will
    still be working toward my dream career, I’m a little more realistic these days about the immediate money-making possibilities of comic
    books. So I’ll be getting my teaching certification and seeing what happens from there.

    Although it might not really show, my influences include Chris Bachalo, Mike Mignola and Michael Avon Oeming. My four years studying illustration have also exposed me to some great traditional illustrators, including my idol, James Bennett
