Welcome to my portfolio blog.

This blog is meant to allow would be clients and studio HR people to view some samples of my work. I am working on a more permanent website which will show more, including clips from shows I've directed and personal animation projects that I am working on.

Most of my work is storyboards and as they are usually extremely huge in terms of page count, you will find links below that will take you to PDF files of my work.

These are just a few samples, if you would like to see more including life drawings and layout work  please feel free to contact me.

Feel free to browse and thanks for stopping by.


Max Steel was a lot of fun to work on and really appealed to the teenage boy in me. It certainly is a show I would have watched when I was growing up. The show is probably the most action heavy show I've ever done and I was fortunate to come in at the beginning of season 1 when creative decisions were still being made.

I boarded whole episodes on an 8 week schedule which left very little room for refining the drawings but I am surprised at how faithful the final episodes are to my work. Click on the links below to see the boards, I will be adding more of them:

As the show progressed the action grew in scale becoming more epic. I drew inspiration from anime and one of my favorite episodes pitted Max against his friend whose been possessed by a magic samurai sword. I had fun with all the sword play and kicking etc.

The Swan Princess Christmas

I had quite a bit of fun on this and had a chance to contribute ideas that were not scripted. Here are some samples of an action scene which I both roughed out and cleaned up.

Back in 2009 I had the chance to collaborate with director Elliot Bouer and Crest Animation on THE LITTLE ENGINE THAT COULD direct to DVD movie for Universal Animation and the Starlight Foundation. It was a fun little project to work, I didn't have the chance to work on too many sequences as I was then hired to be episode director on a CG animated series called THE LEGEND OF ENYO. The schedule was pretty tight which didn't allow us to go to the type of clean up I normally do, the links below will take you to PDFs of the rough sequences I did. Be warned, they are quite raw.

KUNG ZHU storyboards

This board was done on more of a TV schedule, it's rougher than the feature boards, but it was fun doing action which partially parodies Star Wars  and kung fu movies. Please click on the link below to see the board:

ALPHA & OMEGA storyboards

I worked on last years Crest Animation/Lionsgate production Alpha and Omega for about nine months, I would be assigned sequences with some instruction from the director and then given some freedom to explore ideas in the rough stage. That's what's really fun, when you are given the opportunity to put something of yourself into a board be it a gag or piece of unscripted action, even more rewarding is when the director agrees.

This is sequence 1 the opening of the movie. It doesn't play like this in the movie much of it was cut out and probably for good reason . . . it would have been too long. Please click on the links below to see the board, I had to split it into four parts:

VIVA PINATA storyboard

The storyboards on VIVA PINATA were challenging in that the characters didn't have hands, but it was kind of fun in that I was allowed to call on classic animation like Tex Avery when handling comic situations. This was my favorite episode Wild Horstachios. Please click on the link below to see the board:
