Theron Skees spent 23 years at Walt Disney Imagineering as an Art Director and Creative Portfolio Executive. His work includes projects at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland. Theron also led the redesign of Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World to Disney Springs, and he led the Imagineering team at Disney Cruise Line.

This episode includes a lot of stories and advice not heard on our previous episode, including how to become an Imagineer, how to overcome constructive criticism, what to do if your leaders change their mind about a project, and an idea Theron had with his friend Jason Surrell to bring the world of gaming to theme parks.
