Born and raised in New Orleans Louisiana, I began working at the city’s largest television station, WWL-TV in the late 70’s. Working in the production department, we created commercials and PSA’s, then I moved up to on-air Reporter for PM Magazine. After that, I relocated to Los Angeles in 1981 and soon after, graduated from The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
Starting in 1986, I worked as Post Production Supervisor for Churchill Entertainment, which specialized in Children’s and Educational Programming. I also worked as a Dimensional Animator and contributed to the Set Designs for The Mouse and the Motorcycle, Ralph S. Mouse (ABC Weekend Specials) and Stanley and the Dinosaurs (Disney Channel).
In 1996, I began working for Fox Television’s The Simpsons. Soon after, I became Animation Producer and have won three Primetime Emmy Awards.
I’ve always kept in close contact with my hometown of New Orleans and I am so proud to say they’ve treated me like a King… Literally! In 2005, I was crowned King during Mardi Gras. The parade threw metal coins, called doubloons, with my face engraved on them.
