Three years into a Mechanical Engineering degree, I realized that I probably wouldn't be happy with a "typical" engineering career path. I did, however, go to Universal Studios Hollywood for the first time. While watching the Conan the Barbarian Stunt Show, I realized that there must be an industry behind all of that interesting technology, so after I finished my degree, I headed straight out to L.A. As one who dabbles in many things, but excels in none, I went from mechanical engineering to projection design and AV to digital art to lighting while working on countless projects for Disney and Universal Studios. In 2007, I went back to school to learn how to code. Now I make stuff work at Meow Wolf, which has been the most interesting, rewarding experience of all.
