All (Or At Least Some) About Me...

About Me

Born and raised in the sparsely-populated Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Jon Maki developed an enduring love for comics at an early age.
Recognizing that in many ways the potential of the medium he loves is not being lived up to, along with a desire to help bring comics to life, an interest in technology and a belief in the power of the Web and new media to help expand the audience for comics, led him to found OpenDoor Publishing, LLC, the parent company of OpenDoor Comics.
Jon has professional experience in Public Relations, Graphic Design and Desktop Publishing, and has spent the bulk of his career working in the telecom industry. He is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP), a Certified Knowledge Manager (CKM), and holds multiple Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) certifications. He graduated cum laude from Northern Michigan University, where he majored in English and minored in Writing.

Favorite Comics

Pretty much anything by Ed Brubaker, and especially anything by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips.

Favorite Music/Performers

I’m kind of stuck in the past, and tend not to listen to much new music. I’m a fan of thrash (Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, etc.), but I also like more adult contemporary (I guess?) singer-songwriters, like Sarah McLachlan and Liz Phair. I also like a lot of classical/pop fusion.
