I am a medically retired police officer who lives in Harrisonburg, VA. I began my law enforcement career in 2006, but I was injured in a training accident in 2010. After two surgeries to correct my injury, I developed a nerve disease know as Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome. Due to this nerve disease doctors were not able to correct my ankle injury. In June of 2012 I left the department to have a spinal cord stimulator installed to help cope with the pain. In January 2013 I officially retired from the department.
After two years, my doctors and I made the decision to amputate my leg. In March of 2015 my right leg was amputated below the knee, and in June of 2015 I got my first prosthetic leg.
When I'm not working on one of my comics or visiting a doctor/prosthetist for my leg, I can be found speaking at area schools and libraries, at the gym, or hanging out home with my cat, Tip. I also help out at my local comic book shop, The Secret Lair, and I'm an avid comic book reader and collector.
I'm a big fan of Captain America and an editor on the Iconic Captain America Facebook page. I've also done work with WriterHouse, a non-profit writing community located in Charlottesville, VA.
