LATEST REEL 2019
A bit about me:
As an Emmy award-winning animator, director, writer, producer, and designer, I’ve had the privilege of working for some of animation’s most esteemed 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. With six Emmy nominations under my belt, I’ve been involved in 12 development deals and 6 pilots to date, and I’m eager to add to that list this year.
Throughout my career, I’ve directed some of the most beloved animated series, such as Warner Bros’ Pinky and the Brain, Animaniacs, and Histeria, as well as Cartoon Network’s Chowder. I’ve also contributed my talents as a writer and storyboard artist to Disney’s Phineas and Ferb and Fairly Odd Parents, among others, and worked as a Story Artist on Universal’s Curious George at DreamWorks Animation studios.
My most recent accomplishments include directing the Scooby Doo and Guess Who series at Warner Bros Animation for three seasons and three years, as well as season 2 of Woody Woodpecker cartoons for Universal at Splash Entertainment for release on Youtube. I also directed Wolfboy and the Everything Tree at Bento Box for Apple and worked as a storyboard artist on Trick and Trick Scooby Doo for HBO Max, followed by directing season 2 of the series Harley Quinn for HBO Max at Warner Bros Animation. In 2022, I directed season 3 of Woody Woodpecker at Splash for Universal and worked as a freelance sheet timer on three Justice League movies, Velma, Batman: Caped Crusader, and an Adventure Time movie called Fiona and Cake, all for HBO Max, as well as Netflix’s Big Mouth.
I also teach Adobe Flash/Animate and Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and have taught Toon Boom Storyboard Pro for Studio Arts and The Animation Guild.
During all that time I have managed to co-produce two wonderful daughters with my best friend, which is my best work to date.
