A veteran of Walt Disney Imagineering, he has led diverse concept, design and construction projects from hundreds of millions to multiple billions of dollars in a wide variety of experience types all over the world. The requirements for theme parks, hotels and attractions are different than retail, dining, entertainment and cruise ships, however, he applies the same story-based approach to connect the brand to the consumer in lasting ways.
