I've been a designer for as long as I can remember. I remember my mother telling me stories of building crazy contraptions in my room as a kid that she saw as booby-traps, preventing her from entering with out running through a gauntlet of tape, cardboard, construction paper, and Legos.
Approaching time to enter college, I came across the field of Architecture in my personal quest to make a career out of my childhood passion of inventing wild contraptions and creating unimagined worlds where Space Legos battled Ninja Turtles and Power Rangers.
At the time, architecture was the closest thing I could find to what I remember doing as a child. Studying Architecture & Design at Howard University was perfect for me as it allowed me to imagine and create designs that solved problems for people while combining several things I love: nature, art, science/ technology, and psychology.
Studying architecture in college was the perfect playground for my imagination. This led to my current role as an immersive experience/ theme park designer for the last 10 years, where I've been designing concepts for highly themed immersive rides and attractions for what’s been referred to as the happiest place on Earth.
