TEA Masters nominations are now closed for 2020

Do you know of someone who is deserving of TEA Master recognition? TEA Masters nominations for 2020 are now closed, but you can plan for next year. 

TEA Masters of their Craft epitomize the highest standards relative to their respective professional disciplines while also setting the standard for professional conduct within the Themed Entertainment industry. A TEA Master has built a demonstrable body of work that shows consistent quality, evolution and collaborative ability over many projects in the course of a career.

He was one of five TEA Masters honorees in 2019 along with Adam Bezark (writer/creative director), Wayne Hunt (graphic designer), Lisa Passamonte Green (lighting designer) and Philip Vaughan (artist/creative designer), each with 30 or more years in the industry.

The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) introduced the TEA Masters program in 2018. The program helps shed light on the many disciplines and creative specialties that come together in the making of compelling experiences and places. It also helps create professional development opportunities where others can learn from TEA Masters' accumulated experience and wisdom. By engaging more fully with leading practitioners in these areas, we benefit the TEA membership and the industry as a whole: we foster greater appreciation and understanding of the disciplines themselves and their role and impact within a project team.
