My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Orphaned at a young age, I was raised by a pack of rogue malamutes. Living a feral existence in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin, I barely advanced to one rung in the evolutionary ladder. I've been called an obnoxious, narcissistic punk by my Rabbi. After spending some time in a Turkish prison, I was released on good behavior. Despite being determined to turn my life around, my goal of being Aurora's Highest Paid Lapdancer ended when I slipped a disc. Realizing that I couldn't bump-n-grind-n-twerk, I turned to art. After being discovered as a highly touted chalk outliner for the police, I was hired to draw ALL the penis artwork for the 2007 comedy SUPERBAD. I've been married twelve times fathered nineteen children (mostly in Utah) and . . . wait . . .

...sorry. Let's try this again...

I'm a work in progress. Since I'm not satisfied with my body or my job, I'm actually doing something about it instead of whining about it.
I am driven and focused on my long term goal to one day...FINALLY...be able to say: "I am a professional cartoonist. That's my job."

You may or may not be able to handle my sense of humor or my ADHD. (The struggle is real.) My only intention is to amuse and entertain, but sometimes instead of being the comedian, I end up being "The Human Hemorrhoid".
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
On Saturdays, I teach Cartooning/Character Design for kids & teens. It's been a very rewarding experience so far.

-My full time job is working with The Main Crew for Nicor Gas. We put pipe in the ground and connect it to a live existing main.

-I've been taking boxing lessons at X-Sport Fitness in St. Charles as well as X-IT Classes to shed some LBS and build muscle.

-Besides lesson plans, I'm working on a few commissions, comic strip ideas, and character designs. Next year, I'll have a table at Chicago's C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo).

-I'm a karaoke junkie. Well, kind of. I don't go out as much, but I sing with my brother-in-law's band at the church he preaches at and occasionally will lead church service. I'm always trying out songs at home (yes, I sing in the shower).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Singing (VERY well, in fact)
-Drawing/cartooning
-Listening
-Being opinionated (yet still respectful of other's opinions)
-Entertaining people with my sense of humor
-Entertaining kids (kids LOVE me)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My God-given drawing talent
My singing ability
COFFEE!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-my cartoon characters/comic strip ideas/graphic novel ideas

-how I'm going to get a booth or table at San Diego Comicon

-My time in the Army, specifically when I was stationed in Schweinfurt, Germany. Not a day goes by when I don't daydream about my time there. I would LOVE to re-live it all over again.

-Not just being a successful cartoonist, but having my characters be iconic figures that kids go crazy over.

-When I'm going to get married/start a family. It's inevitable, but I always wonder when that day will come.

-What kind of a father I will be.

-The positive and wonderful memories of my life so far that have shaped me into who I am today.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...depending on the Friday, I am either:
-at the drawing board honing my God-given drawing skills
-doing homework assignments
-giving in to my addiction to Facebook
-going to see a movie
-going to a karaoke bar
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I "SpongeBob'ed" the hell out of my bathroom. No joke. After I watched SpongeBob for the first time with Army buddies (no we were NOT sober) while stationed in Germany, I became a HUGE fan.

Yes... I'm 40 years old and I STILL throw down in the heavy metal mosh pits. Crowd surfing is optional of course...
