I am a 22 year old artist from Jackson, New Jersey. As my first job at the age of 15, I was employed at Six Flags Great Adventure as a Caricature Artist/ Body Artist. From there I decided to pursue my passion of theme parks, when searching for college. In researching different majors I found that the idea of creating immersive environments for people to explore was fascinating. I then attended Savannah College of Art and Design majoring in Production Design(with a concentration in Theme Parks and Attractions/ Themed Entertainment), and a minor in Painting. In Winter 2020, I was hired as the Scenic Charge Artist in SCAD's Scenic Shop on their Savannah Campus, where I helped construct sets, translate paint elevations to real-life, and oversee all of the scenic painting for SCAD's theatrical and film productions.
After graduation I moved to Orlando, FL where I was hired as a Scenic Forman for MLC Theming. During my time there I was able to work closely with various Orlando theme parks including Walt Disney World, Walt Disney World Resorts, Universal Studios Orlando, and Sea World Parks. In this position I oversaw scenic painting while leading jobs and a crew. Some of the jobs I had the opportunity to lead were, stonework on entire building facades for Hogsmead in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, Hibiscus Hideaway bar mural at Sea World’s Discovery Cove, and the Ripsaw Falls ride entry way at Universal Studios.
