I was born on August 24th, some time ago. My hobbies include druming for a Kiss Tribute band called Revenge, and trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle by going to the gym at least 5 days a week.
My lifelong dream was to illustrate for comics, and I grew tired of the lack of creativity in the commercial work that would come my way. My friend, Greg Capullo, included some sample X-Force pages that I inked over him to his editor, Bob Harras, at Marvel. The result was immediate work as a contributing inker on X-Force, working over Greg’s pencils as well as nearly all of Marvel’s ‘X’ titles and their spin-offs. I was promoted to regular inker of X-Force starting with issue #38, teaming up with then up-and-coming penciller Tony Daniel, and, over the course of many years, continued to accent each other’s work. After our collaboration on X-Force, we were both hired by Todd McFarlane to be the creative talent behind the Spawn mini-series; Spawn: Bloodfeud.

1992 was the year when I was able to start my career drawing comics professionally…that assignment was The Ex-Mutants for Malibu Comics. Up until that point, I had spent several years drawing black and white comics for small publishers in my home state of Maine; books like Zen: The Intergalactic Ninja, Totem: Sign Of The Wardog, Wayward Warrior, Chiron and others for Alpha Productions, and Demon’s Tails for Adventure Comics. Following my time at Malibu, I spent the next several years working primarily for DC Comics on titles such as Darkstars, The Outsiders, Green Lantern, Superboy And The Ravers, Flash, and Titans. The Incredible Hulk, Silver Surfer and other assorted issues. I also drew a strip called Megastar for Acclaim Comics (Adventure Zone), which was written by Dan Slott. All this work brought me up to the year 2000/2001, which brought my career to…….
In 2001, I moved to Tampa, Florida to work with Crossgen and spent the next 3+ years drawing Negation, written by Tony Bedard, inked by Dave Meikis and colored by James Rochelle After that, I spent nearly 7 years working for Marvel on titles like She-Hulk, eXiles, GLA, The Incredible Hulk(s), Fantastic Four, Nova, Guardians Of The Galaxy, War Of Kings, Fear Itself: The Fearless, and Wolverine. I then returned to DC, working extensively on Aquaman, Cyborg, Titans and Batgirl. I am currently still working with DC on various projects.
