Clint is a big fan of the TEA, and made his first industry contact through a posting here on the TEA website – paving the way for his career aspirations to come true.  His desire to design and build theme parks stems from his first childhood visit to Disney’s EPCOT Center where he was introduced to the wonder of imagination and education with Figment and Dreamfinder.  Throughout his active naval service, he pursued every available experience and education opportunity to prepare himself for a career in themed attractions development, and ultimately found his niche in project management.  After twelve years of active service, he transitioned to the Navy Reserve and took the leap to begin his career and has had the incredible opportunity to contribute to projects for every SeaWorld, Disney, and Universal Park around the world, and additional parks across Asia.  After several years in the industry, Clint ultimately found his home with the SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment Global team where he is now managing the creation of the new Sesame Place Park and contributing to the new SeaWorld Abu Dhabi Park.
