About the speaker

How do we ignite our imagination? What inspires wonder? In this talk, Alexander Whittenberg uses his theatrical experiences to shed light on the value of being present to the moments of wonderment unfolding around us. We’ll explore how listening to the world manifests itself in a desire to collaborate, and why we need each other to create creative magic.

Alexander Whittenberg is a scenographer who designs for theatre, film, opera, dance, and environments. He was born and raised in St. Pete and, after earning his BFA in Scenography from the Conservatory at SUNY Purchase, returned home to Florida to begin his career. He currently works for Disney Parks Live Entertainment, HSN, and as a freelancer for a number of regional theatres around Central Florida. He also hangs out in NYC a bunch, working on top secret creative initiatives.
