At Disney Consumer Products (DCP), we both worked in the same “house” as character artists from the start of my career in licensing and marketing and he already with the Pooh group, until I left and while he was heading up the toy group when DCP re-organized away from being property based over to lines-of-business based.
We would later work together under the “Cartoon” house, although I was in the Atlanta based part and he in the Burbank cased part on the other side of the country.
