Hello! My name is Griffin Schobel, and I am a mechanical engineer located in Orlando, FL. I graduated from the University of Florida in 2021 where I founded the Gator Theme Park Engineering & Design club. I enjoy applying my background in mechanical design and analysis to solve creative problems with the intention of making people smile, which is why I am drawn to the themed entertainment industry. 

During my time as a student, I contributed to the safety and design of ride and show systems in themed entertainment while interning at Walt Disney World, Animax Designs, ThemeWorks, Universal Creative, and Artistic Entertainment Services. In these roles, I gained a variety of experience including supporting the design of a 17 foot tall animatronic T-Rex along with supporting the refurbishment of a well-known log fume attraction.

Currently, I work as a mechanical engineer at Roush Entertainment Systems where my role consists of supporting the themed entertainment industry through the design and production of animated figures.
Please reach out if you'd like to connect - always happy to meet new people!
