Design Philosophy
My passion for design leads to thoughtful, cohesive and vibrant designs for every project I work on. Whether it is an addition to an existing element or a original design; I strive to create something that is exactly what the client is looking for.

As a production designer for the Entertainment Department at
Universal Studios Hollywood™ my duties encompass art director, concept artist, draftsman, graphic designer, and site planner while being an integral part of the creative planning team from “blue sky” concepts, through working drawings and print file creation, ultimately being present during construction and installation. 

Notable projects at Universal Studios include the design and creation of the holiday décor package for the entire Wizarding World of Harry Potter, production designer for all effect integration in the Dark Arts, Magic of Christmas, and Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle projection mapping shows, multiple years of scenic design for the Jabbawockeez show as a part of the Halloween Horror Nights event, and production design for a new, interactive puppet experience with Donkey from Shrek.

I previously held the role of senior designer of the Entertainment Department at SeaWorld® San Diego. While there I served as the lead designer for their SeaWorld’s Seven Seas Food Festival, Halloween Spooktacular, Christmas Celebration, and Viva la Música seasonal events . I also coordinated with and provided designs for the Merchandise, Culinary, Park Operations, Education, Animal Care and Special Events departments.

A graduate of San Diego State University in the Theater Arts department, I also worked for more than 10 years in the San Diego theater community and other production companies around the state and country. As a freelance designer I have created logos, company branding packages, signs, banners, menus, posters, theater programs, and print ads.
