Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the most prominent multimedia franchises to have debuted since the 1990s, and it has dominated my career for fifteen years and counting. Some milestones in my run with the little blue hedgehog:

  • In 2016, I became the single most prolific writer of Sonic the Hedgehog comic book material in the history of the franchise with over 230 issues to my name. Since then I’ve surpassed 250 issues, with material translated into multiple languages.
  • I am the single most prolific writer in the franchise having written material featured in comics, television, streaming media and videogames
  • In 2018, my first four issues for IDW’s Sonic the Hedgehog sold out and went into second printings. The first issue sold out twice, receiving three printings.
  • I created the character Og the Froglydite for the second season of Sonic Boom, who became a reoccurring character.
  • I co-created the characters Tangle and Whisper whose popularity saw them graduate into official merchandise and appear in mobile games Sonic Dash and Sonic Forces: Speed Battle.
  • I have been a contributing member of the Sonic Series lore initiative since 2021. Our objective is to bring a greater cohesion to the series narrative across multiple forms of media.
