1. Please tell us a little about yourself. 

Born in 1979, my first job was working in a comic shop back in 1996, but, I was probably better qualified selling vinyl records or instructing golf. Being a lifelong collector, some of my favorite vices would be: 1960/1970s kung fu posters, first press mono rock and soul records, Transformers, and Clark Wallabees.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Charles Vess Spectre #14 cover, classic. The Spectre has always been a favorite character of mine. Taking vengeance, casting judgment, what's not to like? 

3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?

I began collecting art in 2006ish, I believe. Having long collected comic books, it seemed an easy transition and I always preferred black and white. However, I have to blame fellow collector Matt Moore for getting me started as each passing year sees my disposable income deplete appropriately.

4. How do you display/store your collection at home? 

I have my two Charles Vess covers and my Adam Hughes Malficent piece framed at this time. I would like to get my Gorilla Grodd and Captain Cold piece framed sooner than later, as well. Wall space is, unfortunately, a concern. The majority of my art is stored in four mil Mylar sleeves and I use Itoya portfolios for display.

5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?

Green Lantern #48 cover - volume three

Deathblow #9 cover - volume one

A nice Sin City page

Batman #497 cover

A Steve Ditko Doctor Strange splash/cover
