My skills are applicable to a number of fields where compelling storytelling and immersive environments create unique and memorable experiences for the public. My desire is to lead a creative team to bring grand visions to life.

I have expertise in leading diverse project teams through innovative and complex projects. I am particularly adept at successfully harmonizing myriad viewpoints from internal staff as well as external content experts, clients and strategic partners from around the globe to deliver on business goals.
