About Sudden

We do cool stuff. Stuff we believe in. Stuff we feel passionate about. So whether we’re producing a web series, creating a graphic novel, or developing an internship for writers from under-privileged backgrounds (yeah, it’s in the pipeline), you can bet we’re doing it because we want to and think it’s the right thing to do. ‘Nuff said.

Michelle M. Motoyoshi, Ph.D. CEO. Dr. Motoyoshi founded Sudden Waffles for the very same reason she writes scripts. She likes to take an idea and turn it into something people can enjoy, discuss, or Google. While most of her writing, producing, and directing experience is in theater, she has just finished her first short film, "Practical Uses for a Time Machine", and is preparing for its upcoming distribution.

Leslie E. Motoyoshi, CFO. With 10 years of accounting and office management experience under her belt, Ms. Motoyoshi really knows her way around a ledger. And thank god, because someone’s got to make sure all the numbers line up the way the IRS thinks they ought. When she’s done with that balancing act, Ms. Leslie unwinds the way all great financial minds do. She pops open a bottle of Chardonnay and balances her checkbook.

Steven D. Scherf, CTO. Tech guru by nature, executive by necessity, Mr. Scherf is co-founder of Gracenote and a massively accomplished guy (Google the dude; you’ll see). It’s safe to say he really knows his stuff, but he’s never a jerk about it. Except that one time when that guy asked him why a +10 mace is Monty Haul. But then, he had it coming.

Unique traits: We combine not only visual media- video, comic books- but also written blogs/essays and more.
