He is a part of the Bad Karma Creative group, whose Bad Karma Volume One debuted at NYCC 2013, thanks to Kickstarter funding.

What made you decide to work in the medium of comics?
I’ve always been a huge comics fan. I spent my childhood drawing and redrawing what I saw in comics and telling my versions of those stories. It’s what I always wanted to do.
What part of the process is the most challenging or frustrating to you?
Doing the comics themselves is challenging, but probably the most consistently frustrating part is managing the time required to make comics. While comics are perceived as a fun child-like medium, the time you are allotted to create a comic is about a month. With the amount of time needed to put out the kind of finished product I’m happy with, makes for some long, long hours at the drawing table.
If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring comics creator, what would that be?
Keep working at it. Do your craft for the love of it. You will continuously improve. The industry is set up in such a way that it is difficult to get hired without having prior experience. But keep at it and do your own thing if necessary.
