1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a 36-year old former Correctional Officer and current stay-at-home dad from Western North Carolina. I love pretty much all things comics, but I'm definitely more of a Marvel guy. My absolute favorite character is Captain America. I'm also a huge fan of the Alien films and can recite most of them by heart.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favorite piece in my gallery is the cover to The Beauty #1. I think that it's both beautiful and haunting at the same time. The detail in it is also amazing, especially all of the flowers in the background. Plus, the fact that it was drawn by a dear friend makes owning it even more special for me.

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

I purchased my first piece of original comic art back in 1997 from inker Mark Morales. It was a page from the X-Men: The Rise of Apocalypse limited series that he had inked over Adam Pollina's pencils. I picked it up simply because I thought that it was neat because it featured the Fantastic Four. I've been hooked ever since

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

Honestly, I'm a procrastinator. I have some frames sitting around waiting to be filled with great art and hung up for others to admire. In the meantime, I use the requisite art portfolios.

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

At the top of my most wanted list is a full figure Captain America commission by Steve Epting, followed closely by one from Chris Bachalo. Then, I would love to have any of the covers from Marvel's Civil War and any of the covers from Dave Johnson's brief stint as Captain America's cover artist. Finally, rounding out my list would be any of Arthur Suydam's painted Aliens covers from the 90s.
