I consult and work creatively on experiencial storytelling in a variety of ways, usually seeking out clients and helping them develop their stories as an account manager and designer.
I've worked on exhibition flow, curation, artifact management/conservation, installations, interpretive programs, digital exhibit concepts, graphics and websites, client/fabrication team liaison, fabrication budget management, proposal and bid development.
My work in theater and visual art is what makes me a dramatic and visual storyteller. In this vein I've written, produced, directed and designed for stage shows, films.
But I think it's my experience as an educator of immersive experiences and special events that allows me to interpret the content and design the experience in a way that is way more valuable than if it were just beautiful.
I began my professional career at Disney. I specialized in special event costume design, which included events, parades and personalized shows and walk around characters that developed from featured content. This was the dawn of participatory/immersive theater in the late 1990's.
The training at Disney gave me a lot of groundwork in organizational management for productions. As a result, I've specialized in the unusual, stylized, challenging projects.
