CLIENT Landmark Entertainment Group
RESPONSIBILITY Set Designer/ Art Director
PROJECT STAR TREK
LOCATION Las Vegas, USA
STATUS Project opened in 1998, the second gate opened in 2004
Star Trek the Experience was my first project in the industry in 1995. I was hired by LEG as Set designer working with Master Designer Chuck Canceller and Production designer Luc Mayrand. Then I was promoted to be the Art Director and stayed on the project on site until the opening. The project became the foundation of knowledge for me to be able to continue until today.
The Second Gate started in 2003 and opened in 2004. I was hired for this phase directly by Paramount Parks as the Lead Designer. I worked closely with Paramount Creative team and Ty Granaroli Creative Director as well as Pete Mensching to create the conceptual design and DD package. We modified the existing attraction and were able to fit the new one, even reusing some of the existing sets. The project opened on time.
