Professional Experience
Vice President of Development
Catalyst Experiential
- Current
Catalyst Experiential is redefining the physical form of communication by integrating visual communication technology with municipal landmarks, public safety facilities, and community gathering places. Imagine dog parks, pedestrian bridges, art centers, or fire stations that serve the public while enabling the local government, schools, charities, and businesses to speak directly to the community they serve. We work closely with communities to understand their needs so that we can develop solutions at no cost to taxpayers. The solutions frequently transform under-utilized property into a community asset that combines art, architecture, and advertising in a unique way.
