No one realized how fundamental the connection would be when they introduced five year old Terry to reruns of the Batman TV series. Thus began a lifelong passion for super-heroes, comic books and pop culture. Terry has a BFA in drama from CMU and an MFA in film & TV producing from USC. After a twenty-year TV career in Los Angeles producing everything from commercials to reality TV, he’s returned home to Pittsburgh to raise his kids and help the ToonSeum.
