How did you get into cosplay? I have been cosplaying for about 6 years. After learning how to sew from my college friends, I began cosplaying and attending cons, my first being Anime Central in Chicago/Rosemont, IL. I’ve handmade the majority of my cosplays so far. Some of my more notable characters are Blair the Cat from Soul Eater, Dark Link from Legend of Zelda, and Sly Cooper from Sly Cooper and the Thievious Raccoonus.
What are some of your hobbies? My hobbies include sewing and crafting, watching anime, typical geek stuff.
Where can people find you? You can find me at most Chicago cons, Colossalcon, and Dragoncon, etc.

Tell us about yourself? I am a cosplayer in his mid-30s that has been cosplaying for 13 years this August. My first convention that I attended was Wizard World 2004 and I cosplayed as Neo from the Matrix trilogy. I have a normal day job but I’m also a fitness trainer, Runner and OCR (obstacle course race) outside my normal responsibilities. I do love anime and video games (most of my cosplays are anime based) and I’m also a huge sports fan.
What Are some upcoming cons you will be attending: I will be at Liberty City Anime con, NYCC, and Anime NYC.
