Thanks for visiting my website!
I am an entertainment professional from Clermont, Florida. For the past 30 years, I have been working and learning in a variety of disciplines related to entertainment technology. I am a CTS certified A/V Technician, with an AAS in Electronic Engineering and a background in technical theatre, art and design.
I was always the kid in the neighborhood with the coolest go-cart, the biggest fort and the most creative room. Through the 1980’s I attended the High School for Performing Arts and kept busy in the scene shop of a local theatre company. After a few years of higher education in technical theatre in the early 1990's, my interests turned to sound engineering. As a house engineer for several Long Island recording studios, I was fortunate to be able to hone my skills next to some exceptionally talented artists and technicians. The transition back to theatre came when I took a position as Technical Director for a local Theatre Company. My love for art, design and all things technical has kept me working steadily as a designer, builder and technician in theatre and television since the late 1990's.
Back to school.
Several years ago, a lifelong interest in Theme Parks began to spark a new found excitement and enthusiasm for the next chapter in my career. The variety of disciplines and challenges involved in the creation of immersive, themed environments and attractions had always seemed the perfect fit for my multifaceted approach to life. I returned to school to complete a degree in Electronic Engineering; completed an on-line curriculum for Theme Park Design, joined TEA and IAAPA, and generally immersed myself in the world of Themed Entertainment.
My passion has always been to combine the art of my theatrical background with the tools and techniques of the electronics and engineering industries to help tell compelling and meaningful stories through entertainment. Thanks again for checking out my work. Please stop back every once in a while for blog updates as well as new projects and photos.
