1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I have been collecting comic books for about twenty-five years now, I just recently stumbled across the original artwork collecting community. I am more of a collector of original cover artwork #1s. I also enjoy catching monumental interior pages as well.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

I would have to say that my favorite page is my Final Crisis #6 page 26. In this page Batman not only uses a gun, but he uses it with intent to kill.

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

I have been collecting original comic art for roughly three years now. I didn't learn of the market for original artwork until then, and once I learned about it I dove in.

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

I have some of it framed and on display in my office/collection room. Most are bagged and boarded and stored away safe and sound.

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

I am always in the market for first appearances pages so first and foremost would be Justice League Vol. 2 #40 pg 23 (1st appearance of Grail), Spider-Gwen Vol. 2 #1 Nick Bradshaw variant, New Mutants Vol. 3 #9 (1st app of Surge), Ultimate Spider-Man #160 (death of ultimate Peter Parker), and Wolverine Origins #10.
