Boba Fett is my spirit animal.
I started reading at a very young age with my parents. My father read the comic strips in the paper with me, like Spider-Man, Calvin and Hobbes, and Peanuts. Later, my love of reading blossomed into books, graphic novels and comic books. I also am a classically trained violinist, playing with the Empire State Youth Orchestra program as a child, and played electric violin with the progressive metal band Lore(1997-2003) and the experimental rock and roll band Skeletons in the Piano(2008-2014). I studied creative writing and journalism at SUNY Oswego and I am currently working on an illustrated collection of short stories with the talented fine artist Matt Mrowka. I live in Saratoga Springs, NY, where I frequent rock shows, dive bars and the best comic store around, The Comic Depot. Currently I review new comics for Comic Book Herald, graphic novels for Graphic Novel Reporter, and review concerts, albums, and interview bands for Upstate Live Music Guide.
