He is originally from Burlington, North Carolina, son of an grocery store owner whose first exposure to comics came from reading comics on the store's spinner racks.[7] He was a member of the illustration studio Artamus Studios, based out of Hillsbourough, along with Mike Wieringo, Scott Hampton, Richard Case, Chuck Wojtkiewicz, and others.
