I'm a filmmaker with deep experience as an animator, screenwriter and voice artist. My visual style is flexible, but hews most closely to the look of Disney hand-drawn animation.
As a voice artist, I have years of training and am capable of creating all sorts of characters, male and female, human and otherwise.
My work as a short story writer has won a few awards. My first collection of stories will be published in a few months, and I'm currently writing the first installment in a series of books for young adults. I have an animated movie in production for which I'm credited as screenwriter, and another live-action comedy shooting this fall, to be released by a major studio distributor.
Samples of artwork and writing available upon request, as is my voiceover demo or narration demo.
I'm a fun guy who loves to please and while I'm very confident of my skills and experience, I bring no inflated ego to the table.
I've worked in a variety of capacities as a writer, voice artist, producer and director, character designer and storyboard artist, on numerous productions, principally in the domain of film and TV entertainment. A partial listing follows, with special skills detailed at the very end.
