 Nathan Whitehouse  Sound Technician, Writer, Director, Programmer   Nathan Whitehouse journeyed all the way from the woods of Connecticut to be a part of Honey Toad Productions. On set he can most commonly be found doing location sound, though he was the lead writer and director of Honey Toad's first feature length film,   Semi-Secret  , and finds himself in front of the camera at times as well. He studied video game programming at Hampshire College and does a fair bit of that as well, such as on the kids sandbox game   DinoTrucks   .  He loves the mountains and will babble at length about their majesty and how the biggest mountain in Connecticut was, geologically speaking, only a hill if you get him started on the subject.
