What was it like flying your own plane?
I love flying. It's an experience, unlike anything I've ever had. From the moment your tires leave the ground you feel like you're doing something that man was never intended to do.
What inspired you to draw comics?
Stress. At the time my job was really getting to me, and I needed a creative outlet; comics provided that outlet. Comics are really fun to make, they enable you to create your own little universe and populate that universe with whatever your imagination can come up with.
Do you have a favorite music genre?
Jazz. And not boring, elevator jazz, but the stuff that guys like Kurt Rosenwinkel and Julian Lage put out.
How do you think software will evolve in the years to come?
I think there's an ebb-and-flow to software that follows hardware development very closely. With the proliferation of mobile devices has come a plethora of mobile software that does everything from content delivery to fitness tracking to finance and beyond. I see software continuing to follow hardware into smaller, faster, lighter, more specialized realms.
