While studying at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Ted decided to leave the computer science program and instead was inspired to study computer animation, a move that led to a now 18 year career in the motion design field and ultimately a partnership with fellow Creative Director Adam Gault. Operating out of Long Island City, they founded Block & Tackle, an award winning creative studio whose work includes network branding, commercial and promo work, show package design and key art for clients including HBO, ESPN, FX and TBS among others.
