"It was all a dream!" - Biggie Smalls

The COUP began years ago, as a simple God honoring desire to create an illustrated book of short stories. It's taken on many forms since, including sparking two live hip hop bands, but it's always been in motion; shifting execution but staying true to the original vision of art that honors God. We are a collective of literary, musical and visual artists who love to create and love knowing that you, the reader, are co-creating along with us. We believe what Ephesians 2:10 says,"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." That until we meet God face to face, we can rest in the knowledge that humanity is a Collection of Unfinished Projects working through what it means to be created for good works.

When I'm not drawing my heart out or animating something in Maya and After Effects, I'm playing video games with my kids and annoying my wife with my bad impressions. I enjoy bike riding, mentoring youth, Studio Ghibli films and technology. And I also like going to the movies just for the nachos.

I'm a poet from Cicero, IL who is a disciple of John Ciardi and Christian Wiman and Dean Young and Richard Hugo and Jesus. I'm pursuing a Bachelors in Professional Writing from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ. I'm willing to share my poetry anywhere on the planet, but especially where donuts are present.
