VISION PLANNER
ATTRACTION DESIGNER

About Melody

I grew up in historic Williamsburg Virginia and developed a respect for symbolism, history and storytelling. This passion, combined with design skills acquired through 20+ years of working in Orlando Florida in the theme park and cruise industries, translates into a career of helping to design anything that tells a great story in a physical space.
