04.Jan.2016 My 2015
Yesterday, I was rear ended by a guy who doesn’t know how to drive in the snow. This morning, I woke up sick. So… 2016 is off to a weird start, but hey, 2015 was a great year! Last year, I…
02.Jun.2015 Climbing the ladder
Today on Publisher’s Weekly, alongside eight of my intelligent and talented fellow editors, it was announced that I’ve been promoted from associate editor to full-blown editor. It’s my fourth position in my nearly six years at Dark Horse Comics and my second editorial promotion in the past three years.
09.Jun.2014 On top of the world, Ma!
Recently, ComicBookResources.com announced that Christopher Sebela and Ibrahim Moustafa’s thrilling high altitude noir comic High Crimes, originally published digitally via MonkeyBrain Comics and currently nominated for the Best Digital Comic award at this year’s Eisners, would be getting a print edition via Dark Horse. A collection that I’m very proud and excited to be editing!
10.Mar.2014 Easter Eggs That Only I Care About
I’m lucky enough to have been drawn into/referenced in a few comic books. You can read about them here, here, here, and here. These are Easter Eggs, if they’re even special enough to be called that, which I’m sure most people don’t notice. But—naturally—to me, they’re awesome! Here’s a bunch more from last year that […]

19.Jun.2012 What I Do For A Living
When people ask what I do for a living I usually explain that I work at a comic book publisher and vaguely run down a few of my responsibilities. Each different rank of editor performs a ton of different tasks, all of which help publications reach their pinnacle before becoming available to the reading public. […]
04.Jan.2012 My Year in Graphic Novels: 2011
Much like last year, as opposed to a “Best of” list, I’ve compiled a list of what books I read in 2011. The books are listed chronologically based on when I finished them. Notable reads are marked in italics. The novels I read were work related, but otherwise, this doesn’t include stuff I read specifically […]
29.Sep.2011 Talking Shop: Orchid
A few months back, I mentioned that I was lucky enough to be working as an assistant editor on some of Dark Horse Comics’ biggest launches of the Fall. The first of those books, Tom Morello and Scott Hepburn’s Orchid, is less than two weeks away from its premiere, so I thought I’d do a […]
11.Jan.2011 My Year in Graphic Novels
I envy the comics readers, critics and bloggers who confidently feel they have surveyed enough of the year’s comics work to make a list explaining which books were the best. I always feel like I’m playing catch up, reading comics from recent and long passed history more often than current and groundbreaking graphic novel work. […]
I went to my first San Diego Comic-Con three weeks ago. Long story short, it was a work-filled, more or less sleepless, alcohol-infused 6-day bender of nerdiness. Long story even shorter, I had a blast.
