Games for which I was the Animation Director. I innovated the animation approach and pipeline for each project to best serve the visual style while maximizing appeal and gameplay.
The short animated intro I created for THE GOLDEN MICKEYS, a live-action show that continues to be featured aboard all Disney Cruise Line ships worldwide.
Animation I created for HALLOWEEN SCREAMS, a fireworks “spook-tacular” featured every October since 2009 at Disneyland.
The short animated intro I conceptualized and created for the Reading Rainbow App.
I acted with LeVar Burton (sort of)! In this trailer promoting the Reading Rainbow iPad App, I animated Austen, the Reading Rainbow “book buddy”.
The short animated intro I created for Reading Rainbow’s STORY TIME videos. The bookshelves represent the sky; the foreground books, the rainbow.
Animation I created for Reading Rainbow’s KICKSTARTER video to visually represent “Every Child, Everywhere”.

I am an experienced Art Director currently living in Southern California. I studied character animation at CalArts. My passion as a team leader (and as an artist) is to create meaningful experiences for kids with visually inspired games & animation. That's the core of it: telling a good story and telling it well.
