A professor, writer, actor, and popular culture historian in Richmond, Virginia, I currently teach media and comic books in the Communication Arts department at Virginia Commonwealth University. My classes have included Comic Book History, History of Visual Communication, Star Wars Decoded, From Comic Book to Film, and Superman and Batman in Media.
My philosophy is a simple one: I love comic books and pop culture, so much that I've accumulated a ridiculous amount of knowledge on both over the years. In sharing it through my writing, it's not just my desire, but my obligation to make it accessible to anyone who wants to learn. It's all amazing stuff, and I can't imagine missing out on any chance to spread the love of pop culture and media.
As an actor, I've appeared in productions such as Turn: Washington's Spies (AMC), Killer Kids, and The Revolution. Currently, I am writing historical documentary scripts for Lionheart Film Works, and writing/co-producing/co-directing the award-winning seven-part documentary series Monsters Among Us.
I also publish trading cards and pulp novellas as The Drawn Word, using a Kickstarter model to produce limited runs.
Got any questions? Drop me a line, and I'll be happy to answer them.
