**I'm currently not taking on new commissions because I now only sell what I want to build myself**
I'm a hermit who leads a happy, simple life with my fiancée (professional YA novelist Jaclyn Dolamore) and three cats.
An old Gundam/ anime fogey who saw First Gundam on Betamax (lol) in 1980. Been building models for about 30 years, professionally for 10 of those 30.
I've produced a couple of animated shorts for anime conventions:
And two animated history shorts (History With Dade).
I've won Best of Show awards in some model shows and have been published in Finescale Modeler and Animerica (won three mecha design challenges). I've written some fairly long articles for Modelshipwrights.com.
But after a massive case of burn out/ pre-midlife crisis, I just chill building models and act as a history adviser/ plot sounding board for my girl's novels (Magic Under Glass, Between The Sea And Sky, etc.).
Thanks for reading this self-congratulatory diatribe and I hope you enjoy my stuff! Take care.
