- QUICKIE AUTOBIOGRAPHY -
I cannot stop creating. Creating is just what I was born to do. I started creating when I was in first grade when I would stay in during recess and write, which to this day has not stopped. When Final Cut Pro came out long ago, those writings found their way into videos. I made my first "movie" in 2000 before I graduated from high school. (You can see it here if you want, just know that it is really really old.). Since Youtube did not exist yet, I had to find another way to get my videos online, thus web design became a hobby as well. Broadcast Television first started in 2001 when I began making cable access shows. I learned the basics of Animation from Arthur Clokey himself (creator of Gumby) in 2003. Flash Cartoons first surfaced in 2004 and were soon followed by Flash Games. After chasing the dream for a bit, I began working for NBC and was Nominated for an Emmy in 2010. Finally, in 2012, I created The Viking Bunnies and landed an agent who is trying to sell them to a major publisher as you read this. Whether it is videos, screenplays, cartoons, skits, children's books, novels, graphics, games, television shows, websites, or commercials, one thing is certain: I will never stop creating.

THE VIKING BUNNIES (Children's Books, maybe more)
Who doesn't love vikings or bunnies? I created The Viking Bunnies to be a kid's series, however more than just a kids's series as it is fun for big kids too! Bored with life in the forests and meadows of North Egostica, a bunny named Fuzzy decided that he wanted to be a viking! He convinced his friends Thora, Steve, and Lars to build a boat and head out on The Great Sea. What will these four bunnies find on their new adventures as vikings? Who knows, but you can bet that Captain Fuzzy will lead them to great adventures, treasures, and into the history books (or at least that's what he promised his now apathetic friends). Don't miss The Viking Bunnies!
Everything I have ever done revolves around the first thing I wrote that I felt really mattered. The trick is that I haven't really written it yet. I know the outlines, the stories, the characters, the plots, the twists and so on, but I've never gotten around to really writing the whole thing. The Fury Saga is a five-part series revolving around one man named Mr. Unstoppable who is in search of purpose. During his quest he will make friends out of enemies and enemies out of the most powerful people on the planet. It is practically impossible to explain the whole story without giving away its secrets, but I can say that each story has a villainous theme (greed, violence, deception, control, and terror) as well as a villainous role (pop culture, politics, religion, armies, and ... well, something I am saving for later). The Fury Saga was clearly not written overnight. Expect twists and turns, hilarity and action, insight and philosophy. Expect The Fury.
SUPER SMART LAND (Instructional Videos, Mini Games)
Believe it or not, I have been making a ton of educational videos for various jobs throughout my life. Now, I thought it was time to go out on my own and try my own hand at education. It was with this that I came up with the idea for Super Smart Land: a website full of tiny videos with fun facts, summaries, and did-you-knows. It is a growing site that is a great place to stop in a learn a thing or two. Plus, you can even go on Quests in mini games to test your knowledge against others! This is still a growing site, so stay tuned for more!
ANARCHY ISLAND (Giant Video Game, Cartoons, Comics)
Directly connected to The Fury Saga is Anarchy Island. You could say this is the prequel to The Fury Saga, only you take out the philosophical elements and focus on the insanity and humor. Anarchy Island is exactly that; an island that has no rules. There is a certain harmony that the residents of Anarchy Island have created, but their harmony is disrupted when a hoard of celebrities invade their home. How will the kings of anarchy deal with all these stupid celebrities on their island? Expect lots of cross-overs, lots of celebrities, lots of parodies, and most chaos than you can shake a sandwich at. Just ... I don't know how best to get this series out. Motion comic? Cartoon? The voices and visuals make up so much of the comedy that it has to be one of the two. I just don't know which is best yet. However, Anarchy Island is also my big video game! So count on that! You can play the early version of it now online, but rest assured I am working on a new design for 2013.
Other "Back Burner" Projects that I want to do as soon as I have more time
The Foolish Adventures of Dirk McClintock : Executive Pirate (Novela Series) - A spinoff of The Fury Saga revolving around a character who isn't even in the series. Dirk McClintock is the greatest pirate he knows and will set out on adventure after adventure to prove to the rest of the world the same fact.
Tallow Farm (Puppet Show) - A terrible show about 5 animals who live on a farm while waiting on death row. As they wait, they do drugs, have sex, and try and figure out ways to escape. Too bad escaping the farm will put them in the paws of Murder Bear, the most lovable homicdal bear there is.
The Meatball Sub Show (Puppet Show) - I have a really cool Meatball Sub puppet/character but I don't know what to do with him. Ideas?
