Press & Appearances

Interested in reading/hearing more about the GNP? Want to hear me wax philosophical about my love of all things Godzilla/kaiju? Have a desire to track me down and chat in person, or explore my other creative endeavors?

This page serves as an archive for all GNP/Godzilla-related press and appearances. News articles, non-GNP original fiction, podcast interviews/appearances, discussion threads, random promotional materials, convention appearances, even voice acting… if it involves the project, yours truly, or both, you’ll find it here!

Happy reading/listening/exploring!
