After studying at Calarts, I began my career doing Clean-up in-bewteens on the film Cats Don’t Dance. While there, I helped create my first short for Cartoon Network titled Godfrey and Zeek. That initial jump from features to TV was one I’ve never looked back as I continued to create and sell shorts to Nickelodeon. Since then, I’ve spent the past 20+ years working for Disney TV, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Fox and Warner Bros. My experience spans the 2D and 3D production pipelines where I’ve held the rolls of Storyboard Artist, Writer, Director, and Supervising Producer to name a few. Along the way, I returned to Calarts to teach story on the sophomore level for a few years. I’ve been nominated for an Emmy for a special achievement award in primetime animation and I’m currently leading my team in the role of Supervising Director at Pure Imagination Studios, creating content for the LEGO series HIDDEN SIDE.
