Personal Quote:

If you do enough planning before you start to write, there's no way you can have writer's block. I do a complete chapter by chapter outline. See more »


Was the head writer for Nickelodeon's top-rated children's show "Eureeka's Castle." In fact, when his son Matty was little, he would fall down a lot and quickly get up and instantly say, "I meant to do that!" This inspired the character of Batly, whose gimmick was whenever he would fly, he would fall down and do the same. Always with: "I meant to do that!" See more »
