1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

Born in 1980, I came to this country in 1985 with my family who was seeking a better life. Growing up I always loved Spider-Man and discovered comic characters in 1990 when my friends introduced me to Marvel cards. This branched into comics which I love reading and collecting even today. Today I work as a pharmacist and am the proud father of two children. I still seek commissions, especially from new artists, and published art with iconic images.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favorite piece is the Spider-Man/MJ Wedding Poster art by Bill Sienkiewicz. It is a piece I was seeking for a few years, and a fellow collector alerted me to its availability. It fit perfectly in my collection of Mary Jane and Spider-Man art.

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

In the late 90s while attending a comic convention in Philadelphia, I met a few local artists and was intrigued with their art. And so it began. While I collected vintage comics at the time, I also made sure to visit artists at any convention I attended. Since then I have been collecting both published art and commissions. I always loved Batgirl and Mary Jane, so much of my collection revolves around them.

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

Much of my collection is stored in portfolios, but many of my favorite pieces are framed and hanging in a home office. I love the room and enjoy just looking at the walls of art.

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

  1. Any Batgirl page from Detective Comics #359
  2. Amazing Spider-Man #42 Page 26
  3. Mary Jane Watson commission by Adam Hughes
  4. Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #1 J. Scott Campbell Variant (Stan Lee has to sell it to me!)
  5. Amazing Spider-Man #59 cover
