Character Paint +Themed Finishes Lead


At AOA, the wonderful world of color starts with Kassandra. From splashing through a host of hues for a high-class hotel to curating the chromaticity of a captivating attraction, Kassandra is the finishing touch on any themed entertainment project. With her past experience as a Walt Disney Imagineer and her host of skills in faux finishes, mural work, and production design, she takes projects from dull to dazzling.

And speaking of those color-bursting concepts, Kassandra’s project list includes sensational escapades like Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at Disney’s EPCOT, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort’s re-imagination and Gran Destino Tower, the DVC expansion of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and so much more. Across her multitude of mouse-made projects, Kassandra has been proud to create and collaborate through each step of the production lifecycle.

Kassandra’s own entertainment lifecycle began with a B.A. in Theatre & Dance from the University of Texas, wherein she learned how to turn the sufficient into the show-stopping and fell in love with scenic painting. She later earned a secondary degree, an MFA in Production Design, from Savannah College of Art and Design. Her well-rounded education gives her the ability to look beyond basic environments and extract the story in every step. From her exploits in education to her adventures at the Walt Disney World Resort, Kassandra believes that story is a driving factor in any design decision.

At AOA, Kassandra develops color designs for new construction and renovation projects, presents said designs to all levels of leadership, and executes them in the field. Because of her unique experience from project begin to project end, she’s a master at all the tidbits that fall in-between.

Alongside her AOA team-mates and with those hard-won skills in hand, Kassandra looks forward to washing every future project in perfect shades of pigment. She collaborates, curates, and colors the fine details of AOA’s projects until they shine, making her a perfect addition to any client expedition.
