"When I was a kid, my grandmother took me to see The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. It scared the hell out of me, fascinated me. As I watched, trying not to blink, my heart pounding, I felt like I’d learned some secret truth; the Headless Horseman, the ghost, the killer, he was real. And I was hooked. Stories became my everything. I wrote poetry, imagined fantastic tales and weird worlds. Eventually, I studied theater at Penn State, and spent years performing and traveling across the country before I landed in Columbus. As much as I love theater, its intimacy and immediacy, I’ve always had a passion for exploring other collaborative ways to tell stories too. Recently I’ve been writing graphic novels. I’ve been lucky enough to get published and team up with amazing, diverse artists from all around the world. But Columbus has a secret: it’s a haven for incredible writers and comic book artists, and I’m proud to be a part of that thriving community. I have no idea what I will do next, except that I’ll be telling stories—I believe that stories matter more than anything, that the world only knows that it exists at all because of the stories we tell."
