My Story

I am the architect that never grew up. My day job for decades has been in the theme park industry. Creating and master planning theme parks, themed attractions, museums, visitor centers, and youth ministry buildings.  I am an idea generator, hands-on designer, writer, collaborator, and thinker of fun things.  Some of my favorite projects include Hagrid’s Motorbike Adventure at Universal Islands of Adventure, Ninjago the Ride at LEGOLAND Parks, Battlestar Galactica the Ride at Universal Studios Singapore, and The West Virginia State Museum.     


I have a BA Architecture from Syracuse, an MFA Set Design from Boston University, a wife, 3 kids, and an unbridled passion for being an awesome Dad.
