In addition, his writes and illustrates the creator-owned books, Amber Atoms and MonstHer. His work also includes toy designs and movie design concepts for Hasbro properties such as Spider-Man and G.I. Joe.

His passion for art, especially comic book art, stems from a family road trip out to California when he was 12-years old.

Luckily, the gift shop had a few comic books and he's been reading them ever since.
