I am a Media Specialist at the Indianapolis Public School District in Indianapolis, Indiana. I have been a teacher for 20 years. In addition to teaching, I also consider myself a writer, a poet, a comic book collector, a small business owner, and an enthusiastic Colts fan. I am currently revisiting a manuscript that I completed in 1998, which I originally planned to produce as a comic book, entitled Akebulan 9. This project has evolved and I plan to create both the novel and the comic book simultaneously, which has been titled, Akebulan 9: A Story of Beginnings. This will be the first book of nine. When I am not teaching I enjoy attending various comic book conventions, hunting down comics for friends, colleagues, and perspective customers. I resides in Indianapolis with my beautiful wife LaDonna, our blended family of five children, and a host of family and friends.
