Most recently I have been working as a story artist on a new show for Walt Disney. It’s a series based on one of Walt’s classic feature films and I cannot wait to share it once it premieres in 2017!
In 2013, I had the pleasure of being Co-Animation Director for the Emmy Award winning series Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey
In 2012 I co-created the hit web series Duke of Fancy for the internet channel Rugburn, where I also provide the voice of two main characters.
My work can also be seen in projects for Disney, Imagineering, DreamWorks, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, Warner Bros., Sony, Fox Television, KIA, Google, Fusion, Mattel, OREO, Nickelodeon, MTV, Psyop, W!LDBRAIN, and Six Point Harness. I had the honor of helping my buddy Minkyu on his Oscar nominated short, Adam and Dog, and have done freelance for several other independent studios.
Over the years I’ve had the privilege of being Supervising or Lead Animator and Director on such projects as:
I am skilled in traditional animation and adept at using Toon Boom Harmony, Flash, AfterEffects, and Maya.
Beyond the animation world, I love jamming on my guitar, going to live shows, brewing beer, finding great food around the city, traveling, hitting up Disneyland, designing rides and attractions, woodworking, and raising my beautiful daughter Emma.
Oh–Right, I’m also a writer:
Aiming to bypass the huge publishing houses, Zack Keller, Ben Tuller and I created Pen, Pint & Pyre. Together we produce the hit post-apocalyptic sci-fi series “Meet Me at the Falls” and I am busy finishing my next two novels.
