Hi Everyone,

What a great site! I have been going through all of themedattraction.com's resources for about a week (while "working" at work), and it is remarkable. Like many of you, I have also been scouring the internet for information on getting in to the themed attractions business. I am currently a senior in our electrical engineering program (SJSU), which I switched to with the hopes of eventually scoring an Imagineering position. I continue to be inspired by several aspects of Walt Disney's life and philosophies, and would love to be a part of the culture, if only briefly. I must admit that I wish I got in 50 years ago, when they were truly innovating. I think I am just nostalgic like that.

I have some interesting ideas for my own themed environment attractions that I think are quite different from the current mindset in the industry. I am trying to develope some of these through art and notes to flesh out a portfolio for myself, as advised on this site. If anyone is interested in speaking to me further about them, and maybe collaborating a little, that would be fun.

I am also into special effects, and have done prosthetics make-up design and built some show pieces for a local charity haunted house. I never felt like I was visually artistic, but as I force myself to draw and sculpt more, I can see notable improvment.

I will finish school next Christmas, and I plan to move to SoCal to get close to the biz (movies and parks). My wife wants to be an animator, and has put off completing school until I finish so she can concentrate on our young daughter. She would love to finish up at CalArts.

Anyway, give me a reply if you are interested in getting together, or just want to say "Hey."
