"This man has influenced every host who came after him, and even a few who came before him. He's that good. And I gotta tell you, I do not envy whoever they try to put in that chair." -- Stephen Colbert

Group portraits from mid-century to today.  The colors...oh God the colors...

Introduction
I'm Vice President of Web and Application Development for Marvel Entertainment.  I write, dive and do a variety of other stuff.  I've been known to hang awkwardly around the fringes of the UCB scene in New York.

Nothing here should be interpreted as the opinions of my employer, my family or anyone I've ever known.
Bragging rights
I kind of invented digital comics.
