After studying graphic design he earned a BFA in Animation from the School of Visual Arts, NY. While attending, Teddy animated for Augenblick Studios (MTV, Comedy Central), designed with Milton Glaser, Inc. and for the first season of Food Network's Throwdown with Bobby Flay. That same year after graduation, he designed and illustrated for Sony Pictures, and acquired agency experience at Publicis as art director for a General Mills gaming site. With his last position in New York being a designer/animator at NickJr.com, Teddy left for San Francisco continuing to work for highly recognized brands like Disney Interactive, Google, and Men's Wearhouse. He was last employed at Splunk creating story-driven eLearning videos, before going freelance again.

 

Aside from work, Teddy also writes as a contributor to The Huffington Post, The Bold Italic, and McSweeney's. He founded and ran the San Francisco Lowbrow Art meetup group of 500+ members from 2011-2014, while creating his weekly satirical webcomic, Oscillating Profundities from 2012-2015. Episodes were featured in Laughing Squid, Mashable, Gothamist, and Fast Company. Teddy has also performed live music and comedy in both NY and SF, all in all proving that reaching an audience whether from a desktop or spotlit stage, is what Teddy does best.
