I live near Kansas City with my wife, son, daughter, 2 dogs, and 3 cats. I'm a lifelong fan of sci-fi/fantasy books, comics, movies, and games. My game collection is only rivaled by my art book collection, of which I have been working on for several years and it spans several games, movies, and universes. I also enjoy oil painting, and plan to exhibit in some local shows soon. I've also been off-and-on writing a book/universe setting, which I currently plan to set a comic in; having a published work of fiction is something I've aspired to for a long time.
