1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm originally from Vancouver and now live in northern Alberta. I grew up reading my neighbor's comics and started seriously collecting them when I was in Grade 11. I recently decided to focus my collection on the Val Semeiks run of Conan the Barbarian (Issues #191 to #220). It's coming along rather well I think.  Feel free to have a look!

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

It's hard to settle on just one piece but I think my favorite has to be my Conan the Barbarian #214 cover. Great action and one of the better covers from his run. I managed to convince Val Semeiks to sell me it from his personal collection. He held onto it for over 20 years as it was the first issue that he co-plotted.

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

I've been collecting original art for about two years. I think it was a natural progression as most of my comic collection was complete and I needed something new to obsess over. It's been a pretty wild ride so far and I've acquired some amazing pieces I think. 

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

I have a set of the Kwapisz Punisher pages framed up above my TV. I also have a number of X-Men, Avengers, and commission pieces framed up in my office. The Conan pages I've been keeping in portfolios.  I don't want to split up the pages as I'm marching towards some full issues.

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

1. The Ron Wagner cover to Conan the Barbarian #209. The cover didn't really have any correlation to the story inside but it was one of those comics I read over and over when I was young.

2. A full splash page or cover featuring Vindicator or Guardian from Alpha Flight. I love that old maple leaf costume and I am Canadian after all!

3. A Steve Epting Avengers cover. Something from around the Gatherers storyline.

4. A Marc Silvestri Uncanny X-Men cover. Preferably #229 but I wouldn't be picky.

5. All the rest of the Val Semeiks Conan run!
