Hey, there! I’m Carman and I’ve been working at Fanfare since November of 2013. Having lived in Kalamazoo my whole life, I enjoyed visiting the store for several years before becoming part of the team. I am an avid video game nerd. I fell in love with the medium as a young child, and I’ve been smitten ever since. My love for comic books didn’t develop until I was in college, when a good friend lent me his copy of Alan Moore’s Watchmen. Since then, I’ve tried to make up for all of those years when I wasn’t reading comics.
I love giving recommendations, and can speak at length particularly about independent publishers. I also love creating music, filmmaking, flying drones, hanging out with my wife, and getting to know people.
