Here’s my brand new reel for 2019. Lot’s of new things on here and and there’s way too many that I can’t include because of NDA stuff.
A short I made entirely myself- Two argumentative musk deer; Buford and Cleetus are chased by an idiot named Gunter the Hunter.
A snooty, filthy rich poodle ticks off two scrappy alley-kittens when he denies them scraps to eat.
Animated by hand the tradition way almost entirely in front of an audience via the Adobe Channel on Twitch.

The latest short I’ve done animating live in front of an audience using Adobe Animate on my Adobe Twitch streams. You can see all of my Adobe Twitch episodes here. #madewithanimate
A bit about me:
I am an Emmy award winning, 6 time nominated animator, director, writer, producer and designer.
I have worked for most of animation’s major studios including Cartoon Network, Disney, Nickelodeon, Smosh, Titmouse, Renegade, Marvel, Mike Young Studios, Splash Entertainment, Bento Box, Hallmark, Warner Bros, Universal, Sony, Film Roman and Hanna Barbera. In addition I’ve has had 12 development deals and 6 pilots to date and hope to add to that this year. Some projects I was lucky enough to be a part of include directing Warner Bros’ Pinky and the Brain, Animaniacs, Histeria, Cartoon Network’s Chowder and writing and storyboarding for Disney’s Phineas and Ferb, storyboarding on Fairly Odd Parents as well as producing/directing/animating and designing Smosh’s famous Childhood Stories series for Youtube each of which have over 40 million hits. Recently I was a Story Artist on Universal’s Curious George at DreamWorks Animation studios.
I am currently directing a brand new (unannounced) series at Bento Box for Apple and before that I directed the Scooby Doo and Guess Who series at Warner Bros Animation.
One of my favorite gigs most recently has been directing a series of Woody Woodpecker cartoons for youtube.
I also teach Adobe Flash/Animate and Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and have taught Toon Boom Storyboard Pro for Studio Arts and The Animation Guild.
Five years ago I launched Animation Insider a site devoted to interviewing animation artists which has now interviewed over 1100 artists worldwide.
During all that time I have managed to co-produce two wonderful daughters with my best friend, which is my best work to date.
