Hello friend! My name is Nye. I am a game designer and animator.
I just started a gig at Fabric Interactive. We are working on some exciting opportunities in educational games.
Check their work out here.
Watch this space for updates.
I wrote, developed, directed and co-produced an (endless runner) iphone game about a Space Rooster who squishes Aliens.
I had producing help from Kiran Rao, and code development help from Mike Chiaburu and X-dev Studios.
Want to Play it?
Commander Cluck is on the iTunes Store here.
Previs uses 3D animation to “conceptualize” the look and feel of shots. This helps determine production strategy and cost estimation.
I had a ton of fun playing with virtual action figures, and blowing up stuff in the computer.
You can view my resume of feature films here.
Comics & Cartoons
Some samples of comics and cartoons that I have developed for myself (and a few for others).
You can see some of my current experiments at my internet sketchbook, Nyetoon.

|Hello, my name is Nye and, when I was a kid, I built transforming robots out of Lego.
I recieved a BFA in Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania, and a MFA in Computer Arts from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. In 2004, I made a film about the problem of like-polarity robots who fall in love. Magnetism earned me my MFA, won awards, played in international film festivals, and landed me in the animation industry. I have worked for Electronic Arts, Sony Imageworks, Fox, Blur, Proof, Digital Domain and The Third Floor. I’ve worked on a number of big budget feature films.
As a content creator, I have landed three development deals; two in cartoon animation and one in iphone/game development. My focus is now on producing and designing games for mobile.
I also teach animation at the Art Institute of Santa Monica. You might see me hanging out in a Venice Beach coffee shop drawing robots.
Thanks for stopping by!
