I'm a storyteller by nature and I love collaborating with other writers and filmmakers. Under my entertainment shingle Monsterfoot Productions I conceived the story, developed and produced “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” for Walt Disney Pictures and originated the ideas and wrote the screenplays for “Monster Witness Relocation Program” and “Tiki”. At Sony Pictures I'm producing “Dodge & Twist” and “Savage Planet”.

I'm a NY Times best selling author. I wrote the critically acclaimed novel “The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless,” (currently in development as a motion picture for Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Films) the picture book “Because I’m Your Dad,” some graphic novels and I co-created the new Disney brand and book series “Star Darlings” with my wife.

I began my TV writing career working on short form, comedic web content for various production companies and animation studios. Then moved into scripting family content, sitcoms, action oriented dramas, supernatural and science fiction based high concept television shows.

As a musician I've written and scored, commercials, web series, reality series, specials, countless television projects and recorded songs for multiple motion picture soundtracks. I've been in a few bands, made a handful of albums, music videos and toured the globe playing music.As as an actor and TV personality I've performed in many half-hour, scripted television series and hosted hundreds of hours of reality programing and various game show formats.

I consultant for a variety of businesses and brands in a myriad of ways but more often than not, I'm employed to create their marketing. As the creative, I stay involved from pre-production to post-production on the content I generate. To me marketing is just another form of storytelling which is what I love, so I enjoy it immensely.

But my all time favorite job is being a husband to my dazzling wife Shana and a proud father to our amazing daughter Halo.
