biography

I specialize in the high-level design of engineered entertainment, and having participated in depth in the development of many of the world’s most innovative and iconic amusement park ride systems, I like to think I've helped make the world a happier place :-) From an early age I have been involved in engineering and entertainment, first combining these interests almost forty years ago, and since then I have explored every area of entertainment that has an underpinning of engineering – Music to art, Thrill rides to Theater, Movies to T.V.; all rely on engineering for success. In 1987 I began to focus on the needs of theme parks, and now neither Disney nor Universal, worldwide, have a park that I have not contributed to. My tenure in this field gives me the ability to give sound advice on when to buy off the shelf, and when to design custom machinery. I believe my most important contribution to projects is to establish a good technical direction as early as practical. A strong artistic streak, combined with many years of practical engineering experience makes me an ideal interpreter to move from the imaginative to the real world, while maintaining the creative vision and contact with the ground. I would like to apply my hard earned skills to any interesting design/engineering projects requiring assistance. Motto: “Aut inveniam viam aut faciam” – There is a way, find it, or make one (with thanks to Hannibal)
