After that I directed on an unannounced series at Bento Box for Apple. this year I was recently a storyboard artist on an unreleased SCOOBY DOO DTV and I am currently directing the series HARLEY QUINN for HBO Max at Warner Bros.

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.
