Following Working, Savage has several directorial credits, including Hannah Montana, That’s So Raven, Drake & Josh and Boy Meets World. During his directing tenure, Savage lent his voice to several animated shows, including Kim Possible, Family Guy, Justice League Unlimited and Oswald.2015 marked the return to acting for Savage as he was cast in the Fox series, The Grinder. Savage has steadily maintained work in directing and acting through ABC, NBC, and Netflix.
