Projects Worked On
Paul the Apostle: A Graphic Novel: A biblically based comic book ministry tool based on the life of Paul the Apostle, set in a futuristic science fiction universe.
Roles / Skill Sets
I am a storyteller, a poet, an urban farmer, a purveyor of awesome, and most importantly, a Jesus-follower. During college, God put it on my heart to begin work on Paul the Apostle: A Graphic Novel. The vision: tell the accurate story of my hero, Paul the Apostle, but set it in a futuristic sci-fi world using crazy amazing cartoon creatures. I assembled the team, co-wrote and edited the script, art directed the illustrations, and founded Beartruth Collective LLC to publish the book. All glory to God! I received my MA in Comparative Literature and Creative Writing from California State University of San Marcos. I am passionate about storytelling and the power of art as a means of spreading the Good News of Jesus.
