Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Villains are the most fun to animate. It's fine to have a villain who beats people up and calls them names but the more important thing for me is whether or not they are they interesting. The villains that are interesting are the ones you remember. See more »


Referred as one of Disney's "Nine New Men". See more »


Often animates the villain (Gaston in Beauty and the Beast (1991), Jafar in Aladdin (1992), Scar in The Lion King (1994), Alameda Slim in Home on the Range (2004))
