One of the 21 COOLEST people who call Montreal home, according to 

The Huffington Post.

I am an animation director, writer, and illustrator.  Some of my films tackle challenging subjects, while my independent experimental films are utter nonsense.  My films have received honors from all over the world, including an Oscar nomination, an Emmy, and the prestigious "Best Bad Taste" award from the Ottawa Animation Festival. I have worked extensively with the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and with other studios.

 


Books

I have written and illustrated four children's books, including Cinderella Penguin, and a graphic novel, Penguins Behind Bars, which I adapted as a TV special for Cartoon Network.


Teaching

My teaching experience includes Harvard University, the Rhode Island School of Design, and Concordia University. 


In addition I have had retrospectives at numerous festivals, including Annecy, Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver, Anima Mundi, Vienna, and Beijing, and conducted animation and storytelling workshops around the world.

Currently working on:

Tiny Screens, a six minute experimental film which combines animation with 1950’s educational film footage.
