About the creator
Matthew Medney is the CEO of the legendary Heavy Metal Magazine and co-founded boutique storytelling company Herø Projects, where he also still presides as CEO. Leading the charge at two genre focused brands, Matthew spends most of his time thinking about the unknown.
A graduate of the University Of Massachusetts at Amherst's Isenberg School of Management, Matthew started his career in the live events space — operating as a tour and production manager, traveling across 45 countries and producing over 200 shows for concerts such as Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival and Lollapalooza. "A prolific writer" (Variety) with the ultimate goal of looking to expand minds and engage readers through high concept science fiction, Medney has authored best selling works such as his hard sci-fi novel "Beyond Kuiper: The Galactic Star Alliance" and the graphic novel "Dark Wing." In addition, he has penned multiple comic books including "The Red" and his highly-anticipated forthcoming work "The Adventures of Adrienne James," which can best be described as "female Indiana Jones — in space" (SYFY). Other notable comic and graphic novel works Medney has helmed include work done in collaboration with bands and music festivals such as the largest hip-hop festival in the world, Rolling Loud, Grammy-winning musician Shaggy, along with other notable talents such as NGHTMRE, Pegboard Nerds, Riot and Insomniac Events.
John Connelly is a Mechanical Engineer for Lockheed Martin Space, who contributes to numerous NASA missions, including Mars 2020, LUCY, Deep Space Gateway, and Orion; however, space and the unknown don’t occupy his entire being. Following his dreams to work in the aerospace industry, John moved to Denver, Colorado where he met Tony, his amazing wine slinging partner, who is a Chef and Sommelier. John’s expansive mind and energetic curiosity led him to enjoy a myriad of creative outlets, such as boulder scrambling, disc golf, searching for the perfect wave to body surf, gardening peppers too hot to eat, and gloving. Between delving into these fine activities, he honors his Irish heritage and cardio needs by participating in Ireland’s true traditional sport: hurling (look it up). Beyond all this, he is an artist, an acrylic painter, whose strokes transcribe exotic dreamscapes to canvas and bring a vibrant lush palette to illuminate new worlds. Throughout all of these diverse facets of life, his affinity for words never wavered. Transcribed and translated from existential questions to tangible adventure, his and Matt’s world building and galactic lore span a lifetime of curiosity.
