Story
Introduction
I am a creative consultant to the entertainment industry.  For 25 years I was a senior show writer, director and producer at Walt Disney Imagineering.  Today, I continue to work on projects for Disney, as well as, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens and similar theme park venues around the world.  During my time with Imagineering, I was involved in the creation of shows and attractions for every Disney theme park from Splash Mountain in Florida and Tokyo; to Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain in Disneyland Paris; to Roger Rabbit’s CarToon Spin in Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland; to Star Tours and the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  In 2002, I started my own creative consulting business, Rhodes to Imagination, Inc., and have participated in projects ranging from “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” and “Transformers: The Ride – 3D,” at Universal Studios; to live theatrical entertainments for the Disney Cruise Lines and Epcot’s “The Sum of All Thrills” at the Walt Disney World Resort; to the National Flight Academy’s attraction “Ambition,” at the National Navy Museum in Pensacola, Florida.  I also did concept work and scripts for the 2002 Olympics for Kodak, as well as, for SuperBowl XL for the city of Detroit.  Prior to joining Imagineering, I wrote two best-selling novels, and today, I am the writer, director, producer and co-creator of the popular Disney DVD series, “Imagineering the Magic!” about the creation of the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Theme Parks.  I have also served as a Creative Vice President of the Show & Game Studio for TEQGames, and was the creative director and primary investigator for F.I.R.E., the Research and Entertainment division at Full Sail University; during the time I worked as an advisor for the school’s film, game and creative writing programs.
