Conrad Vernon, born 1974, is an Americandirector, writer, and voice actor, probably best known for his work on Shrek and Shrek 2. Vernon started his career as a storyboard artist on Rocko's Modern Life, after being hired by the animation department by Cal Arts in Valencia, California. He also worked in the same capacity on Antz and Morto the Magician. After Antz proved a success as the first animated feature film to be produced by DreamWorks, Vernon signed on as a writer for Shrek, where he was responsible for the Gingerbread Man, and eventually lent his vocal talents to that character, and served as a sort of utility player during production of the movie. He also provided vocal talents to Shrek 4-D and Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas. DreamWorks, happy with the success of Shrek, then gave Vernon co-director credit on Shrek 2.
ConradVernon makes his directorial debut with Shrek 2, in which he also reprises the role of the popular Gingerbread Man. He first did the voice of Gingy in Shrek, on which he also served as a storyboard artist and additional dialogue writer.
Vernon joined DreamWorks in 1996, and worked as a storyboard artist on PDI/DreamWorks' first computer-animated feature, Antz, as well as the traditionally animated comedy The Road to El Dorado.
In 1994, Vernon went to Film Roman where he was a storyboard artist on the popular animated television comedy The Simpsons.
