Animating on, "The Simpsons" Summer of 2000
The quintessential Southern California Story.
I was a kid in the 70's and 80's, planted in front of the television set, with a bowl of cereal and a remote control. I was obsessed with all things popular culture. From Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Tom and Jerry, He-Man, Spiderman, Back to the Future and Disney Feature Animation. I was fascinated with the magic of Hollywood and how movies were made.
I grew up close to Disneyland and Hollywood.
Los Angeles was in my backyard as a kid. I fantasized about what it would be like to be a part of that world. I dreamt of Hollywood, and contributing to the illusions on the big screen.
For a time, I lived my dream and animated on 'The Simpsons'
In the summer of 2000, I achieved my dream. I was hired as a Character Lay-out Artist (an animator) on 'The Simpsons'. I earned an Emmy Award for my contribution to the show. I attended premiere parties and cruised the Sunset Strip. For a moment, I lived the Los Angeles, Hollywood life.
Never before have I shared the intimate details of my Simpsons story
My story is one of self-discovery and overcoming self-sabotage. I truly "Woke Up in Springfield". My journey to achieve animating on 'The Simpsons' is riddled with poignant life lessons. My lack of maturity and preparation, paired with the animation climate in the early 2000's primed me toward anger, bitterness, and destruction.
Raw, uncut, unedited self-sabotage, and self-destruction in Hollywood
In this unique and one-of-a-kind biography, I will weave in how the subconscious mind works, how we self-sabotage and offer practical solutions in this raw, unedited Simpsons story.
This is a story that I have NEVER told publicly and one that for many years I did not have the strength to confront! I am opening up in a way that I never have before, so that you may learn about your own self-limiting beliefs, anger, self-sabotage, consciousness and, ultimately, redemption.
