1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
 
I'm an Army medic who's been in for a little over 11 years.  I was recently accepted to the Army's Physician Assistant program and am very excited to be the first college educated person in my family.  I'm living the American dream.  I came in at 18 with $20 in my pocket and a few changes of clothes and now I have a beautiful wife and family, all the things I could ask for, and hope that my kids will have a hell of a lot more opportunity than I did.  
 
2. Which is your favorite piece in your gallery and why? 
  
My favorite piece is hard to choose.  I would have to say that's it's the Walking Dead Omnibus wrap around.  I've been a huge fan of zombie horror since I was a boy, all of the Romero stuff and anything else related to it.  I feel that even if a person were to see this piece and have no idea about The Walking Dead, they would still get a sense of hopelessness and horror that's central to the genre.
 
3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?
  
I'm new to the hobby.  I used to collect comics as a kid, but was pretty poor.  I didn't have a lot of access to the things many of the other kids did.  I've always been an avid Stephen King fan.  When the Dark Tower books were made into a comic series, my interest in the hobby was reignited.  I started collecting Dark Tower related art and my love for horror bled over into my collection of zombie art.
 
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?
  
I frame the pieces that are most important to me and place them around the house as much as my wife will allow.  The rest are kept in mylar in portfolios.
 
5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?
 
This is a hard question. 
  
1.  Page 26 of issue 1 of The Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born.  This is the page where Roland first gets his guns after besting Cort and was used for the sketch cover.  For some reason this image is extremely nostalgic and I'd love to have it hanging in my home.
  
2.  A Gunslinger commission from Cliff Rathburn.  Cliff's the grey scaler for the Walking Dead and I've always been blown away by his work.
  
3.  A Gunslinger commission from Tony Moore.
  
4.  Any commission from Jae Lee.
  
5.  I would absolutely love to own any of the original Michael Whelan paintings from the first Gunslinger book.  This is a pipe dream because I'm sure that any that would surface would be well out of my reach.
