Since August 2019, I have been consulting with the fine people at Global Village Dubai to create a new night-time lighting experience for the Carnaval Rides and Attractions area, in preparation for their 25th Anniversary Season and the millions of expected new visitors visiting the UAE next year for the upcoming Worlds Expo 2020.
The project scope included the networking of 120 dmx connections to 40 artnet devices placed in ticket booths and power rooms situated throughout the Carnaval area, in order to provide synchronized control of over 200 moving light and led fixtures.
Design elements also included an original pole canopy design to support a new skytracker position and protect the moving lights from rainfall and direct sunlight, the hardware specification and software programming for centralized lighting effect playback for a number of ride triggers, and the networking and programming of nearly a 1km of digital RGBW festoon strings.
Themed lighting programming was also created for major holidays, the weekly firework shows, and for scheduled daily park operations.
Many thanks go out to Sreetheran Karunanithy, Rishwan Sathik, Neil Dwyer and the other excellent people at Global Village, and to Moshin and the team at White Horizon for being such hard workers and great company on those long overnight shifts.
Big thanks to Gary Gray for pairing me up with Paul Ciesiun and L3DFX for an extraordinary opportunity to deliver a combined Audio, Video and Lighting Design concept for a new attraction at Field of Screams in Mountville PA. Thanks also to Gene and Jim Schopf for their hospitality and allowing me to contribute to such an amazing park they’ve created, and to Charles “Stacks” Stackhouse for his much appreciated on-site assistance.

Many thanks to Eric Gradman and Christian Chaudhari at VIRSIX for having me to up to light the new Great Forest Challenge at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound WA. Its an innovative and immersive take on the themed attraction- a sort of walking dark ride crossed with a full scale life-sized video game that was great fun to do. I hope it’s a much of a success as it appears to be! Congrats, all!

I was quite fortunate to be sent to the Beijing on behalf of Ted Ferreira and Patrick Yu at CD+M Design Group to focus and document the grand opening of the Happy Magic Water Park inside the Olympic Water Cube. It was a distinct privilege and an honor to be involved in such a project, and I would again happily drop everything and head to Asia in a heartbeat if the possibility arose. Thank you Sunny and Patrick for your kind hospitality and I hope to work with you both again in the future!
