Master Planner, Lead Show Set Designer
While working at Thinkwell Group, I was a key designer involved from the concept phase to opening for the re-done permanent exhibit of Richard Nixon’s life at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. We successfully created an exhibit that told Nixon’s story, controversies and all, in a new way that attracted younger audiences with immersive and interactive experiences.
One of my responsibilities in the concept phase was master planning the exhibit by organizing each story beat’s placement in the physical space while also considering optimal guest flow and capacity. And working with the project’s senior art director and creative director, I conceived spaces through 3d modeling and rendering. In the later design phases, I led the effort to create build drawings while managing a team of drafters and 3D modelers.
I used SketchUp and Podium to visualize the designs and AutoCAD to create the build drawings.
