Project : Manga

While a Creative & Web Director at Starz Media, I developed Manga.com as the premiere online destination for Manga Entertainment and Manga Video’s catalog of 800+ titles, including Ninja Scroll, Ghost in the Shell, Astroboy and Eon Kid. At it’s height, Manga.com had 300,000 monthly unique users that engaged with video, articles and forums surrounding the variety of well-known animated features and series.

Leading the Starz Media Digital team, and after a year of development time with Microsoft and Brightcove, I helped Manga Entertainment debut as one of the original applications available on the Xbox Live platform. In June of 2012, I received the Brightcove Innovation Award for Best Connected TV App for Manga Entertainment on the Xbox.
