In a nutshell...I grew up in Amish Pennsylvania farm country, moved to New York City and lived there for 8 years. While in NY, I worked as an animator and illustrator. I've been working for Disney since '87 went on staff in '92 and moved to Los Angeles with Disney in '94. I'm currently the art director for the Mickey Franchise at Disney consumer products. I live in the Hollywood Hills with my wife and 3 spoiled dachshunds.
