I help companies and organizations lead their traditional design-delivery production into the age of Virtual Design and Construction (VDC). I counsel and collaborate with multi-disciplinary teams of brilliant Imagineers. Together, we bring dreams to reality through a rigorous process of architectural design and engineering, integrating over 140 disciplines to build Disney Theme Parks and Resorts.
As an Architectural Designer/BIM Application Specialist I find unique technical solutions for the complex challenges of theme park design, foster cross-pollination among team clusters, occasionally pitch big Blue Sky ideas to the Mouse, consistently look to the future for inspiration (Sci-Fi and Fantasy are my favorite genres of anything), and I annually scout talent for the Walt Disney ImagiNations Design Competition.
My specialty gravitates towards all things tech. With a natural affinity for technology, I’m always looking for ways to leverage it to augment processes and product experiences. On especially great days, something new and amazing is created as a result, extending the limits of what is possible.
