WHO IS THIS JOE PERSON?
Self-promotion always feels a bit weird to me, but I thought it would be good to have a place to share the things I've worked on.
My life-long interest in drawing and art lead to me studying it all through school and into University, achieving my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art in 2008, during which time I exhibited in several art shows.
Following on from this, I earned my Masters of Teaching, Secondary in 2011. I taught in various schools in the Hunter Valley region of NSW, Australia as an Visual Art teacher until 2016 when I moved to the UK.
In 2006 I started the The Phantom fan site ChronicleChamber.com which continues to this day. Since then I have written for several sites and also continue with my artwork.
I continued as an art teacher until 2018 when I decided to leave teaching for other opportunities. In 2017 I married my amazing English wife and live in Portsmouth, UK.
I'm a huge geek and collector with a strong love for comics, SEGA and their mascot Sonic the Hedgehog, videos games both retro and modern, as well as fantasy and sci-fi.
