Upon obtaining a degree from Bowling Green State University in Popular Culture Studies with a minor in Film, I moved to Chicago with my sights set on a career in filmmaking. I have been working a 9 to 5 job while producing a short films and independent feature films for nearly a decade now, but just this past year I began writing comic books and something just clicked. This is the perfect medium for me to create in.
All of the elaborate ideas I had for movies would cost much more than I could ever afford. By tapping into the comic book world, I am able to make my words come to life on a page through working with one or two artists rather than an entire crew. Production costs are minimal compared to independent filmmaking, and Kickstarter allows me to raise the funding for Art, production, and shipping, all while exposing my writing and creativity to a broad audience.
I've always considered myself a writer. I went to college without a clue as to what I wanted to pursue as a career. I eventually settled into studying popular culture because of my interest in the meanings behind art, music, and film. My degree taught me how to write, but my stories have come to me through living life.
I ran my first successful comic book Kickstarter in March 2016 for issue #1 of my comic series, Alter-Life.
I am currently working part-time for my local newspaper the Wednesday Journal, and full-time as a comic book writer and creator.
