I'm currently freelancing and specialize in designing imaginative places and experiences inspired by beloved IP. I previously worked as a Show Set Designer for 4+ years at Universal Creative in Orlando, Florida. During my time at Universal I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, including Volcano Bay, Super Nintendo World, and Universal's Epic Universe.
I love bringing stories to life in the form of functioning built environments that everyday people can enjoy. I thrive when I am part of a multi-disciplinary team, working with others to solve problems, generate new ideas, and progress towards a common goal. My modeling software knowledge, sketching abilities, digital illustration skills, spatial understanding, and attention to detail make me an adept designer capable of following a concept from Blue Sky through Design Development.
I hold my M.F.A. in Themed Entertainment Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah, Georgia. Prior to SCAD, I studied landscape architecture at the University of California, Berkeley (go bears!).
Work Hard. Keep at it. Live simply and quietly. Remain humble. Stay positive. Create your own luck. Be nice. Be polite...Rock on.
