I'm a researcher and writer with a special interest in documenting the lives and works of creative people in pop culture. I blog sporadically about music (at 3 Minutes, 49 Seconds) and comic books (at 24 Pages). I've published three books so far - Eleanor Cameron: Dimensions of Amazement, The Hopefuls: Chasing a Rock 'n' Roll Dream in the Minnesota Music Scene, and I Can Read It All By Myself: The Beginner Books Story - with two more on the way.
I was born in Kentucky, grew up in central Illinois, and spent my reckless youth in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. I currently live in Normal, Illinois with my wife and two sons; two cats; and way too many records, books, and comic books.
