For Fox Television Studios. As EP in charge of set on the pilot of this new sci-fi series, I supervised all department heads on creative issues, and was the liaison to actors, studio, visual effects, and the post-production supervisor. Neil Gaiman has recently come on board to shepherd series development.
For Blumhouse. My first comic book series and graphic novel published by Red 5 comics is currently in development as a television show. Comic Book Jesus called it “excellent…wonderfully created…” and “a surprisingly emotional throwback to classic action/horror stories."
For Lionsgate Television and The SyFy Channel. The Lost Room was a critically acclaimed 6-hour mini series starring Peter Krause, Julianna Margulies, and Elle Fanning. As EP in charge of set for the series, I supervised all department heads on creative issues, and was the liaison to actors, studio, network, and post producer. The show was nominated for two Emmys and a WGA Award. The New York Times called it “a jackpot for a mystery series,” While Salon raved, “Forget the latest from JJ Abrams. The Lost Room is a cult hit waiting to happen.”
For Warner Bros. Feature Animation / Warner Bros. Studios. I began my career at Warners as a junior executive, but had the opportunity to grow over the years, being promoted first to Director of Creative Affairs, and then eventually becoming acting department head of my division. I ultimately oversaw a staff of 20 and 16 projects in development, including the ever-so-cool DC Comics properties. Of all the films I had a hand in developing there, my proudest achievement is The Iron Giant, which has received near universal acclaim amongst critics and fans alike.
For Walt Disney Movietoons / Walt Disney Studios. At my first job in the entertainment industry, I was tasked with creating the story department for a now-defunct animated feature film division. Here I honed the invaluable skill of critiquing scripts, and was given the tremendous opportunity to co-write the treatment for the movie Tarzan, which led directly to the film’s greenlight.
