I have written, story edited and/or produced hundreds of episodes of animated and live-action programming for kids, as well as several feature films. Before writing full time, I worked as an educational media producer, a consultant for British animation companies and an executive at the Disney Channel.
As an animation writer, I started out specializing in “edgy celebrity-driven comedies.” But after the success of Madeline, I became in demand for literary-based shows.
I won one Daytime Emmy (for Madeline), one Ace Award (also for Madeline), and the Humanitas Prize (for Camp Candy, starring John Candy). I also received nominations for four additional Emmys, as well as many international awards.
