17.Oct.2016 The Dawning of a New (Professional) Era

For the past year, I’ve worked from home as the senior editor at Stela. Toiling away at the desk in my home office gave me unique insight into the day-to-day of the talented writers, artists, colorists, and letterers I work with regularly. Now, I’m taking it to the next level.

08.Oct.2016 Breaking In: Advice on Starting a Career in Comics

In 2015, thanks to a very kind introduction from Marvel Talent Relations Manager Rickey Purdin, I was invited to be a guest at Comics Uncovered, an intimate aspiring comic creator seminar attached to Birmingham, UK’s International Comic Expo. I was being flown out to do portfolio reviews and hang out and talk comics—it seemed too […]


02.Aug.2016 The Longest Overdue Movember Update Yet: 2015

Well, it’s been a crazy year—what can I say? Movember 2016 approaches and it dawns on me that I never did a post recapping 2015’s fundraising efforts.

Back in September, I left Dark Horse Comics after six years to pursue a position at a brand new company. But, due to the top secret nature of that new job, I couldn’t say anything about where I was headed. Now, thanks to the killer publicity efforts of Steve Sunu, I’m psyched to share that […]


29.Aug.2015 Diversifying my reading list

Last year, I read an article on XOJane entitled “35 Practical Steps Men Can Take To Support Feminism.” I consider myself a feminist, but being a male feminist often means regularly relearning that you have a long ways to go when it comes to understanding and supporting feminism. Thankfully, I’m lucky to have many amazing […]
