How’s it going?

My name is John. I am a writer and toy photographer living in Ontario, Canada with my amazing wife, awesome daughter, and a small menagerie of animals.

Specializing in toys and collectibles, my work has appeared in the pages of the local newspaper, Smarter Than Jack, The 100 Project, and on websites like and here at 8-Bit Pickle. Working closely to promote numerous brands from the likes of Bandai, Bluefin Brands, Boss Fight Studio, DC Entertainment, Diamond Select Toys, Hasbro, Jakks Pacific Mattel, MEGO, NECA, and more, I have amassed numerous positive relationships from within the industry.

It is my hope to one day write a series of books dealing with the numerous toy and collectible fads that have defined our society over the last fifty years.
