Comics are my main playground but I often hop the fence and run through photography fields,multimedia mountains and prose plains. I also walk on the macrame moon, but I’m horrible at it.  I have 3 graphic novels under my belt: Victor’s Legacy – A continuation of the Mary Shelley Frankenstein story.  Nowadays – A zombie apocalypse in rural NW Ontario. Season of the Dead Hours: A tale of magic, long banished druids and mysterious creatures, all wrapped up in Celtic myth. I’ve been a part of numerous group gallery shows and had a couple one man shows. I do a regular weekly piece for Comic Book Resources’ ‘The Line it is Drawn’ (go to ‘comic book resources’ or ‘comics should be good’) , am one of 5 local artists every week at the Thunder Bay Country Market (upstairs in the ‘Octilius’ booth) , am one third of Zero Issues Comic Podcast with 2 fellow comic artists Bry & Kyle ( and  i try to fit in as much art and craziness in between those as i can. It’s exhausting but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I am a Canadian artist living in what some would consider the middle of nowhere….. and that’s fine with me. I reside in a country home with my amazing wife, Mel. We have 2 cats, Fate and Haxa the Destroyer. One of them is a jerk.
