Panda Enclosures

I have designed a number of panda enclosures. Here are two of them, one for Hangzhou Safari Park and another for the Guang Zhou Zoo. The one in Hangzhou was realized. (3D models by others).

On occasion projects are concerned with a redo of existing neighborhoods in countryside towns. This calls for a redefinition of land use. Here are some samples of this process.

Green Roofs (food producing) and Walls

In Shenzhen, I was afforded the opportunity to design and (help) install a roof-top garden in a financial district of Nanshan. It was a fun project, as I believe in roof-top gardens both lowering a city’s general heat signature and provide relief to office workers as it appeals to the basic sense of nature in all of us as many of us are not too many generations from being farmers.

Sketches from a Bus in China

Two years ago I got a job across town  -Shenzhen- which required a one hour bus ride starting at 7:am. I started early so I could get a seat, (I live in China) and refused to push or shove or be herded boarding a bus if I could help it. If I got a seat, I would spend the next hour staring into my lap and sketching vigorously on my drawing pad. Ostensibly, because I wouldn’t want to make eye-contact (with everybody’s -strangers all-bodies pressed closed to one another, eye contact is highly improbably), but largely because I have general anxiety and find relief in worlds that I create. Subsequently, I have hundreds of these drawings. Some good, some not so good, but all a reflection of my mind at the time riding a crowded bus and most, expressions of the human condition in a rather unflinching and raw manner.

Happy Warrior

It is has been noted by a beloved authority that I look “grumpy” in many of my posts. My only excuse is, that bringing dreams or reality to life, as is my passion and my experience, I must fight what I think are the forces of darkness, (mediocrity). The grumpy looking pictures are usually of me in the midst of this aspect of the creative process. Believe me, I love what I do and the drawing table and being on-site  are (aside from being with my family),  my favorite places to be. The boardroom, -not so much-, but there the passion for any project must be conveyed. Below are some more “happy-snaps” denoting the fact that; Yes, I am a happy warrior.

I am happy to have a passion and a life that serves others bringing dreams to life!

Thank you!

Past Theatrical Experience

I am a simple artist and draw things. However my early training was in performance. First as a performer myself and later as a costumer, prop maker, set designer/builder etc. These experiences, in my opinion helped prepare me for show design and production and gave me a better understanding of spacial relationships as in coordination with living players both performers, guests or even animals.

Early years, ballet

Later musicals, song and dance

Rock and Roll vocalist

Set design and production

Favorable Reviews

Award Winning

 Teaching at Junior College Level, Theater Crafts
