In 1995 I graduated with a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in Painting and in 1998 earned an MFA from the University of Missouri Kansas City in Set Design for the Theatre. In 2011 I joined PGAV Destinations as an Exhibit Designer initially to work with a team on the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit for the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Since that time I’ve had the privilege to work on many different projects at PGAV at different stages of their developments ranging from early master planning/concepts to final design deliverables.

Prior to PGAV, my wife and I lived in Dubai for nearly 3 years where I worked overseas on Ferrari World Abu Dhabi (opened as the world’s largest indoor theme park) as the Assistant Art Director. Ferrari World offered me the opportunity to work as a designer on a large project from early attraction concepts in 2006, through all phases of design, fabrication, and installation, to project completion at its Grand Opening in December, 2010. It granted me not only holistic concept-to-market exposure for the life of attraction development, but the position to do so within an international forum of mixed cultures with varied strategies for implementation. Throughout my career I’ve had the pleasure to work within many different facets of the design industry and with many wonderful people.
