I desire to work with a team of artists, creating characters and worlds which inspire audiences the same way I was inspired growing up.

As an only child raised in rural TN, animation became freedom of thought & perception. Whether it was animated TV shows from PBS (Clifford, Sagwa, Martha Speaks) or old Disney VHS tapes my family found on consignment, those films were armor for my mind & heart against a weird & confusing world that didn’t always make sense as a kid. Discovering animation outside the US (thanks to GKIDS) showed me how animation can heal & transcend boundaries, connecting us with other viewers globally.
