Executive Producer, The Adventures of Puss in Boots and Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale and currently working on an unannounced DWA TV series Best Memory: This is going to sound tremendously venal, but I think it was the first time they gave us an annual bonus. It wasn’t about the money; it’s just so rare that I feel really appreciated. When it’s money you know they really mean it. A muffin basket also would have worked, but don’t tell them that or we won’t get bonuses anymore. Secrets of Success: I think they have an exceptional ability to find good creative executives. People who know when to buckle up and dive in and when to just stand back and let the magic happen. Defining the Brand: Glossy and high-quality, with a side of snark. Wildest Anecdote: All I do in life I do to avoid the occurrence of events that can be described as “wild anecdotes.” I have been very successful at this. Most Rewarding/challenging Parts of the Job: The most rewarding part is seeing the finished show and giving it the highest praise I ever award myself, “Good enough, probably!” The most challenging part is everything leading up to that point. Daily Inspiration: Coffee. Future Trends: I imagine it will probably collapse into some kind of barbaric Road Warrior- esque dystopia, with artists, writers and executives killing each other for food and gasoline. That’s why I’ve been working out.
