ABOUT

Who am I? Great question that I don't really have an answer to. I can tell you that I love comic books, guns and dragons. Oh... I also love sword fighting. Like real sword fighting. None of that made up fake sword fighting stuff. I like doing it with groups of people wearing full suits of armor whilst we try and make heavy dents into aforementioned armor. Besides that, I love telling stories, making up fantastic worlds and having a hell of a time with great people. If there's anything you want to know about me, generally I'll tell you. Having spent almost ten years at war (and in a combat zone) I have learned that holding back happiness and crazy stories is a bad idea. I'll gladly share my whole world with you. Just take the time to check out my blog, read my comics and enjoy life.
