I am a creative developer, story editor and scriptwriter for children’s animated television. I write and edit bibles, springboards and premises, outlines, and scripts. I specialize in character and story driven “girl themed” cartoons, although I have experience working on all aged/themed shows, comedic and action.
During my years studying in CalArts’ Animation Program, I naturally excelled at story. And while my career started as a producer of educational video games and animation, I quickly transitioned into a storyboard artist as soon as the opportunity arose. That said, being on the production side gave me a true respect for the entire animation making process.
I have storyboarded from basic outlines (thus written my own dialog) as well as from script. My extensive animation background gives me a greater understanding of animation direction and timing, as well as the animation capabilities of 2D and CGI. I always clearly visualize my scripts as I am writing them.
Additionally, having studied music for many years has given me a great advantage when writing lyrics for shows. I have credits in writing some of the actual music on cartoons. I have experience vetting voices for shows as well as have attended voice recordings to provide additional direction.
I currently reside in Ventura County, CA, with my husband Clay Morrow (Supervisor, Disney TV Animation), and our 2 sons….as well as 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 tortoises, and 2 rats.

about the little yellow camper
This camper is a Scamp, domestically manufactured in 1978. These campers can still be purchased new. I bought the camper about 4 years ago and my husband Clay and I (with the help of our kids) renovated it, keeping as much of it original as possible. However, we quickly outgrew the Scamp after a couple of years of camping in it, so recently it was converted to my office studio. Working in a small space has actually been very conducive to creative work!
