I design experiences that tell immersive stories in physical places: theme parks, rides, attractions, museums, live shows and events.

I've spent nearly three decades combining location, technology, emotion and interactivity to engage and excite audiences in new and unique ways, from the interactive Men In Black dark ride at Universal Studios Florida, to the ToyMaker 3000 exhibit at Museum of Science and Industry Chicago, to numerous thrill attractions for Paramount Parks across North America at Kings Island, Kings Dominion, California's Great Adventure and Canada's Wonderland (details on my LinkedIn profile, below).

Currently, I'm Principal, Creative Development at Thinkwell Group. In my most notable project there, I acted as primary park-wide creative director for over a decade on blue-sky concepts through production and completion of Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, a 1.6 million sq. ft. indoor theme park in the UAE, supervising the development of over twenty world-class attractions — from dark rides to media spectaculars to coasters to live shows — in six highly-themed immersive lands based around WB Classic Animation (Looney Tunes & Hanna-Barbara) and DC Comics.

You can see video playlists of some of my work and interests over at my YouTube Channel.
