Writing

OBJECTIVE

To combine my computer skills and extensive production knowledge to provide a creative company with a Story Editor, Staff Writer, Development Person, Production Manager, and/or Associate Producer.

I’m especially interested in applying my experience as a one-man development team. Since writing shows for CGI, I have a more than average knowledge of the possibilities and current limits of the medium. My experience in traditional animation and storytelling sensibilities would come in very handy for any format in the animation field.
