I've been reading comics since I can remember and I've always dreamed of being involved in this medium that I love so much. For about 12 years I played in a touring rock band and when all of my musician friends decided to join the real world I was left with no creative outlet. I have been attending comic conventions as a handler for an artist friend of mine for 7 years now so I asked him if he would allow me to try my hand at coloring some of his work.
I fell in love.
I started coloring his con sketches and sketch cards with copic markers and then moved to some digital work with a small wacom tablet and photoshop. I watched every video I could find and took online coloring classes, practicing on many different styles of line art. I have since dived head first into coloring by purchasing a 22 in Cintiq and trying to find projects that will let me grow and explore.
My first published work was a 9 page supplemental story for the back of Jayson Kretzer's Wannabe Heroes Issue 2 penciled by Jason Godwin. I have since worked on 3 other short stories that are up on Comixology, 2 full issues for Primary Target Press that are scheduled for release, and I did the colors for a board game called Last Stand for Woodtop Worlds. I am currently working on a 3 different limited issue runs for Inverse Press. (Nikolai, Last Ride 4 Horsemen, and Killer Bees)
