| Years pass, After graduating college with a BFA in Film/animation I made a couple short animated films while working as a mural print making giant cibachrome prints. Eventually decided to put my school
learnin' to some use and interned at an educational software company animating in Macromind Director. High tailed it out of there to work for a game company in
California. Animating mostly for sports games but a couple original titles. In my "free time" made little animated dittys for fun during those creative droughts
of working on sports games.
About 2001 I started making ventriloquist figures instead of those little animation projects. It wasn't until I got laid off and was
dirt poor that I decided to put one on ebay to pay the rent. I had a better response than I had ever imagined so decided to go public with my figures. My first figure
was also how I connected with Bill Nelson and began a partnerhip with him
