We Can't Wait to WOW You!
The inspiration for Creative Works came from my grandpa, a master craftsman and cabinetmaker, who got his start in the late 1880’s. He encouraged me to creatively combine my experience in business and construction to build a business that would ignite the fun industry.
We are relentless about infusing fun into the work environment at Creative Works. That means I spend a lot of time with each individual — to hear their stories and learn what lights their motivational fires — so we can truly build an EPIC team and succeed together.
President / Owner
Memories are shared experiences that last forever, even if the world changed tomorrow. That’s why Creative Works is so dedicated to helping our customers create experiences for their guests. As a huge technology geek, I’m always looking for ways to transform the attractions everyone knows and loves into modern, revenue- and memory-generative machines.
Encouraging play has always been one of my passions, from working in an FEC at 18 years old to studying early childhood education to managing a laser tag facility. At Creative Works, we help our customers create spaces where children can be creative, energetic and build friendships. Because play is a wonderful gift to give the world.
