Burn Rourk is the Art/Production Director at The Jambalaya News, and a graphic artist with over 20 years experience. Geek is his race and heritage. He is a pop culture aficionado with a wealth of useless (entertaining!) information, and a comic book/toy collection room with a Mac in it that he refers to as his “office”. Burn has a weakness for conspiracy theories and stray dogs, and has more ELO in his iTunes than he will ever admit to. Please visit his graphic design gallery at www.burnrourk.com, and his pop culture-fueled blog community at www.atomicwanderers.com.
