IMAGINE THE PRESSURE OF GETTING HAGRID'S DESIGN RIGHT!
With over 25 years of television, video gaming, mobile apps, book publishing and advertising experience, I am obsessed with innovating new ways of creating amazing narratives that are absurdly memorable and effective.
I have worked as a writer, story artist, animation director, animator and designer on productions for Disney Jr., Disney Interactive, Warner Brothers, CBC, Teletoon, National Geographic Kids and the Cartoon Network. As an artist and animator for Electronic Arts in England he created some of the first designs for the Harry Potter game series before the movies had been released. (And yes, I did feel the pressure!)
I was a Professor of Story, Animation and Gaming at Sheridan College for 12 years and was the founder of Sheridan’s Transmedia Storytelling Centre that bridged faculty and students from departments as diverse as dance and video-gaming to create amazing narratives.
I am the creator and founder of the STORYIST, a story consulting company that helps people and businesses find and tell their best stories.
