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. Theron’s portfolio in themed entertainment is one that serves as an inspiration for aspiring designers, Imagineers, and anyone looking to turn a dream into a reality.

In this episode, Theron and I chat about his career at Walt Disney Imagineering. A couple of my favorite stories include an in-depth discussion about Disney Springs (the conversation will give you a greater appreciation for this part of Walt Disney World) and Theron's major contributions to the retooling of Tower of Terror.
