Moore was born in Colorado and grew up in Southern California. He graduated from Oregon State University and completed his master's degree in journalism at the University of Oregon, his alma mater’s rival institution. After college, he worked as the sports editor for Maui News in Hawaii. During this time, he created In the Bleachers,. Soon after, Moore moved to the Los Angeles Times where he worked in sports, news and features for 11 years. He resigned as the Times executive news editor in order to concentrate on his comic and to work in TV/feature film animation. Success followed in this field as well, and he completed two animated feature films that, combined, grossed $299 million worldwide: "Open Season” and “Alpha & Omega.” Moore has produced 26 animated shorts for ESPN and is the creator of a children's animated TV show titled "Metalheads." Even with his diagnosis with Essential Tremor, Moore plans to continue with his comic and stay attached to the sports world.
