He also voiced the character 'Mr. Muffin' in the Asdfmovie series created by TomSka. His first role as a leading character was as the puppy "Rolly" in the Disney Junior show Puppy Dog Pals. He also voices Pepper Corn on Summer Camp Island. He is also the voice of Blodger Blop from the Disney Junior show Miles From Tomorrowland.
