About

I’m currently available to produce, coordinate, direct, storyboard, and animate.

I’ve directed animated shorts and full episodes for the web and television, put together animation and video film festivals for multi-city runs, and most recently was Head Producer for live action and animated shows for Nick Toons, Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon. As a Director and Producer I enjoy developing ideas from their most basic concepts all the way to fully realized pieces of visual storytelling.

In 2000 I was a student in Boston working with a group of likeminded animators to produce a film festival of video and animation shorts. We continued to put together festivals for another four years.  After college I moved with the group to San Francisco and began doing web design and animation for DVDs and promotion.  From San Francisco I got the opportunity to move to New York and write, storyboard, and animate on a pilot.

In 2003 I began working at Animation Collective, a fledgling company that was doing a pilot for MTV and a web series for AOL.  I began as a storyboard artist and animator, but after a couple of years I was directing more web series and sssistant directing on other television pilots.

I continued to work for Animation Collective as a Director and Story Developer through 2011.  As a director I kept an eye on all the various facets of production and worked closely with the producers to meet the tight deadlines under low budgets.

In Summer of 2011 I became Head of Production at the studio and for the next year and a half I oversaw two live-action animation hybrid shows for television.  My hands were in there from the very beginning. I worked with the writers to develop story arcs and character tone, with the live action crew to discuss casting choices and locations, set design and direction. I was a little bit of everything for those two shows, helping to coordinate and making creative decisions on every level. The challenge was to make two good shows on a low budget and with very little initial thought put into the concept. It was development on the fly. I am proud of those two shows. I was able to produce two shows in tandem with a number of hurdles in place, and still come out with product that is more rich than the budget and basic concept would suggest.
