I was born in Philly but moved to New Jersey before I was old enough to dress myself. Growing up in North Jersey gives you an interesting perspective on life and an appreciation for good pizza, subs, chinese food, and people with attitude. Growing up, I was passionate about my super heroes, my hip hop music, my sports teams, and my bad 80's hair styles. I attended New England College in Henniker NH (the only Henniker on Earth!) and after a semester in England, transferred to and graduated from Emerson College in Boston. On a whim, I moved to Orlando for a brief stint as a Splash Mountain Cowboy in Disney's Magic Kingdom before moving to NYC to start my actual adult life. I worked in production on commercials, talk shows, and some amazingly awful independent films. I truly love NYC but after a few years, LA was calling so I packed what I could carry and headed west. LA is now my home. I'm an Emmy award winning executive with over 15 years experience creating and producing engaging and successful content for young audiences. I've developed and produced animation, live action, game worlds, apps, and games played by millions. What I do for work, many kids do for fun. In 2005 I created Urbaniacs.com, an online social community and casual gaming site for kids and teens. Thanks to games like “Wedgie Toss” and "Wedgie Toss 2: Back in the Crack,” I'm responsible for over 35 million virtual wedgies. Urbaniacs sold in 2012 and I'm happy to say that it is still going. I've had great experiences working with Disney, Nickelodeon, YouTube, the NFL, PBS, Cartoon Network, Spin Master, and more. I'm currently a creative executive for kids and family at Netflix.
The bottom line is that I love creating entertainment that's actually entertaining. I live in Burbank, California with one wife, two sons, two dogs and anxiety.
