- When he was growing up, he had two passions: baseball and comic books.
- He'd never planned on going to college, but then he was offered a baseball scholarship to the Eastern Washington University.
- Took the opportunity to study graphic arts while playing baseball and working part-time at a local comic book shop.
- When he finished college, no professional baseball teams wanted to recruit him, so he turned all of his focus towards comic books.
- He sent his comics to stores and companies all over the U.S. and received over 700 rejection letters in return.
- But when he finally got his first letter of interest, it was from none other than Marvel/Epic Comics.
- After several years with the company, he and a few other artists started their own platform, on which he published the now-infamous Spawn.
- Since then, he's pursued just about anything that interested him: he's started a toy company, owned an NHL team, and produced music videos.
