Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:

I am an experienced freelence and full time writer of comics, video games, VR short films, and more. I adore classic superhero comics of the four color variety. I also enjoy the occasional distraction Vertigo style comics, in particular Bill Willingham's Fables and Hellblazer. Back in my younger days, I also enjoyed Kingdom Come, Watchmen, and so on, but have lost the fascination with the "Everyone hates Superheroes, including the Superheroes..." Trope. 

I have written for and play/run a number of TTRPG's, mostly fantasy, sci-fi, pulp era, Superheroic (of course), horror.  Currently, my writing career path has been writing for Mobile and AAA video games, specifically Comic book related IPs and brands like Marvel, DC, and The Walking Dead (both AMC and Comic). I also have been known to write comedy, which can range from high brow, satirical to crude lowbrow in variety. I was blessed to be able to work on a major motion picture release for MGM studios and have written for numerous games with comical elements. 

I have been looking for artists, colorists, and even animators/digital artists interested in doing web/print comics. I am open to almost anything that isn't purely religious in nature.
