1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I was born and raised in Westchester County, NY and got into comics rather late, in High School (late 80s). I became a Marvel Zombie almost immediately with my favorite titles being Uncanny X-Men (discovered through the Classic X-Men series) and Silver Surfer which had just started up making it easy to jump right in. I read comics fairly consistently through the late 90s/early 2000s until I discovered original art. My first purchased piece was a Colossus & Juggernaut sketch from Dave Cockrum at one of the old Mike Carbonaro shows at the Church on 59th Street and Amsterdam in New York City. It was all downhill (from a financial perspective) from there...

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favorite piece of artwork in my gallery is really my Ron Lim Cosmic Double Page Splash commission, but since I need to go with a single page width image for this feature, I'm going with my Art Adams Colossus commission. While my love of all things Cosmic in the Marvel universe is fairly obvious when my collection is viewed as a whole, Colossus is my all-time favorite comic book character and Art Adams's covers to Classic X-Men are simply brilliant. When I had the opportunity to request this piece from Art at San Diego Comic Con 2003, I didn't realize how lucky I was to actually get it. Needless to say, it's one of those permanent additions to my collection.

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

The Cockrum Colossus & Juggernaut sketch is, I believe, from a show in either 1999 or 2000. At that time, I didn't even realize that artwork, published or commissions, was readily available. When I heard that Dave was going to be at the show, I made it a point to get something from him as his artwork (even more so that Byrnes) was what I really loved when reading those Classic X-Men/Uncanny books all those years earlier. But while this was where my overall collecting of artwork began, I didn't REALLY catch the bug until SDCC 2003 when I finally got to meet my all-time favorite artist, Ron Lim, and had the opportunity to purchase some commissions and original art pages from him.

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

99% of my artwork is stored in Itoya portfolios which themselves are stored in architectural flat files. The only two pieces of art (besides lithos/giclees) which are framed and hanging up are my Cockrum Colossus & Juggernaut and my Ron Lim Cosmic DPS. These have the most sentimental value to me, so I wanted them out where I could look at them every day.

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

I couldn't even REMOTELY afford any of these even if I had the opportunity to purchase them, but here's to dreaming...

1) The cover to Classic X-Men #1. This is my all-time favorite piece of original art.

2) The cover to Giant Size X-Men #1. This is the one that started it all (let's face it, the X-Men were dead until this came along)

3) The cover to (Uncanny) X-Men #102. Dave Cockrum, Colossus, Juggernaut.... 'Nuff Said.

4) The cover to Infinity Gauntlet #1. One of my all-time favorite stories.

5) A Marvel Cosmic DPS commission from Art Adams.
