And the award goes to

I've just won an Emmy award for Individual achievement in Animation!!!


I have spent the last couple of years working on The Backyardigan's, a show that I now AD on, and it is for this work that I have been so honoured.

Janice Burgess(the creator of the show) and the rest of the gang at Nick Jr. were extreemly thoughtful in throwing my name into the ring for consideration. It was an incredible surprise when Janice called me last week to let me know that I had won.

I will be traveling to L.A. for the award, which happens just before the regular Emmy awards, on June 14. I can't wait.

Now all I have to do is figure out where my wife is going to sleep once I bring this little lady home.

Hey that's really really cool Jeff!! Congrats on the EMMY.

We're just getting caught up with you now, a little late, and I assume that you've been to pick the award up already. If not, have a great time schmoozing it at the ceremony.
