I began coloring comics professionally in 2011, and I’ve been a fan of comics as far back as I can remember!

I’ve worked as a colorist for comic book publishers like Image Comics, IDW Publishing, Black Mask Studios, and countless small-press and indie publishers. I’ve worked on Judge Dredd for IDW/2000AD and Hack/Slash for Tim Seeley (Grayson, Batman Eternal, Revival) at Image Comics. I also worked on one of the short stories in the 2015 Harvey & Eisner-nominated In The Dark: A Horror Anthology.

I have two projects coming soon from Image Comics and IDW that I hope to announce in March 2016!

I’m a huge movie fan, guitar player, drummer, and a big fan of movies. I live in Long Beach, Mississippi, with my wife of twelve years, We have two cats!

I hope you enjoy the webcast!
