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.
