Introduction I write and draw comic books and have had an extensive career in animation, film, and gaming. I created, wrote, and drew the book UXB which was published through Dark Horse Comics and the critically acclaimed THE HUNT with Image/Shadowline comics. I co-created HARVEST(Image) and the books CURSE and BURNING FIELDS (BOOM! Studios). I have also worked on THE X-FILES and MILENNIUM(IDW) and many others including: CLIVE BARKER'S HELLRAISER, THE BLACKLIST, BLACKOUT and the award winning anthology DARK HORSE PRESENTS. Concept designer on Speilberg's sadly unreleased A.I game but did get to see the release of Universal's The Hulk and Ubisoft's CSI. I've also worked on Warhammer and The Simpsons. More recently, I storyboarded on the forthcoming features THE SOLUTREAN directed by Albert Hughes and THE LIGHT OF MY LIFE by writer/director Casey Affleck.
