Toasty Tales

Demo Reel

Hi there!

Welcome to my website! I am a creator, writer, director, and animator. I love developing stories for children and young adults. Inspiring the imagination and encouraging inclusive playfulness are qualities I strive for. In 2016 I co-created Toasty Tales, a children's animated pilot for Amazon that combines 2-D animation with stop-motion. You can meet the characters and learn more about Move-Along National Park right here! You can also find excerpts from my comic series Tim Town, illustrations and research from my Endangered Species: Along The Border series, and more. Past projects include writing and creating short online content for Cartoon Network, development deals with Cartoon Network and Amazon, Animation and character design for Rick and Morty, Story artist and animation for Bojack Horseman, Director for MTV's Greatest Party Story Ever and many more. I also love to design so be sure to check out my Etsy shop to see what's new!
