I am an Emmy and Annie Award-losing animation director who makes cartoons for world peace and money.

My work has appeared in TV shows, unaired TV pilots, and in many too-often-aired TV commercials. This right now is the internet.

Vine

People. I’m deep deep into Vine. It’s so casual, quick and easy to just pull out the device I am already carrying, and just capture 6-second glimpses into the daily experience – without the option to overthink or overedit. I am reflecting the moment I’m in. Sure, I’m looking for decent shot compositions, cut patterns,...
The DMV is awesome.

The DMV is awesome.

OK fine, the DMV is actually a desperately sad place where we all witness, first-hand, a demonic floorshow of brutal bureaucracy at its most grotesquely mundane, carried out by legions of miserable and uncaring foot soldiers to the delight of no one.

We spent some time there during the Spring as we paid an old Chinese lady to stick needles into my wife during this most recent pregnancy.  She prescribed...
An accidental picnic.

An accidental picnic.

This is now super old news, but back in March we got into a car accident.  A guy decided he wanted to take a sudden left turn and discovered that this was where we were driving at that time.   It was pretty sudden and scary.  Three tiny kids in the back seats and my...
The latest lately.

The latest lately.

It’s been awhile. I used to find time to write at night a couple times a week, but  for months my workdays have been so creatively/mentally/metaphysically challenging that by the time I pull in from my Nascarrish commute at 8 or 9, I’m wiped.  I have nothing for anybody. This is what I see if...
