Dennis oversees the smooth operation of our company which, in this highly creative field, can sometimes seem like you’re herding cats. Fortunately, as a licensed architect, Dennis understands the importance of creative freedom but knows it has to be tempered with a strong sense of discipline.
Dennis brings more than 15 years’ experience to his role of senior director of operations. He has helped build close client relationships with some of the world’s biggest names in entertainment design, including LEGO and Six Flags. He keeps complex assignments on track, makes sure all the moving parts stay untangled and develops business processes that safeguard the best interests of our clients and our company. That’s no small task, given the over-the-top scale of our projects. A self-described contract geek, Dennis believes that dotting all the i’s and crossing all the t’s makes everyone happy by clearly spelling out expectations on both sides. He develops his structured thinking and problem-solving abilities by practicing Jiu Jitsu. The only creature immune to his considerable organizational skills is his happily rambunctious dog, Blizzie, who simply refuses to be managed.
Inspiration: Seeing people get so much from the parks we design
How he relaxes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu
Always on the Hunt For: Distinctive architecture
"As crazy as a design may be, you have to know the rules before you break them. My goal is to make FORREC better at what we do."
