Biography

He has written original digital series for Maker Studios, Disney Interactive, Machinima Inc. and 20th Century Fox's Digital Studio. Until 2015, Houghton managed 20th Century Fox's Digital Studio's talent incubator, and aided in the development of original sponsored web series for brands like Taco Bell, MySpace, Kia Motors and DirecTV.
