A Bit About Brad...
After years of working as an Animator, Character Designer and Storyboard Assistant Director, I began directing and showrunning back in 2009 with the debut of the animated, award-winning, comedy series, Almost Naked Animals.
In 2013 I was nominated as “Best Director in an Animated Series” at the Canadian Screen Awards & in 2014 the series won for “Best Animated Series”. (Among having many other world-wide nominations and wins throughout its 3 season run).From there, I continued as Director & Showrunner for another hit-comedy series entitled Numb Chucks (1.5 seasons). Among many other nominations, Numb Chucks was also nominated for a “Best Animated Series” Canadian Screen Award.
After more than 13 years with 9 Story Media Group, I then moved into the world of CG animation and directed Spin Master’s preschool series, Rusty Rivets.
I then began directing Dr.Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat throughout pre-production as well as working closely with the development department on a wide range of projects at Portfolio Entertainment.
During my years as an Animator, Storyboard Assistant Director and Character Designer, I contributed heavily to television shows and specials such as Best Ed, If the World Were a Village, Jacob Two-Two and the Emmy Award-winning, Peep and the Big Wide World.
