Propulsion: Passion into Profession

Do you dream of turning your creativity into a career or making your side gig your main gig?

Joby Harris has done exactly that.

Hear from Joby as he shares about his creative journey and how he got to where he is today without having ever held a "real job". Come prepared for Q&A's. (And yes, Firefly-specific questions are allowed)

Doors open at 6.30 pm for a 7 pm start. Drinks & nibbles provided.


About Joby

Joby Harris has made a living as a designer and artist in Los Angeles for over 25 years working for some of the most influential people and companies in the world. But it took working at NASA and alongside people who study the Earth, Solar System and everything beyond it to fully understand that his approach to creativity and its impact on people was very limited.

In his role as Visual Strategist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, Joby uses art and design to support scientists & engineers with strategy in early mission formulation, current mission communication and in public outreach. Before JPL/NASA, Joby worked in the theme park industry at Walt Disney’s Imagineering and spent an additional 15 years as an artist in the TV, film, publishing and music industries.

Joby has created props, costumes and concept designs for film and television sets:

Film:

Solaris; Pirates of the Caribbean; Bruce Almighty; Cat in the Hat; Bad Boys 2; XXX; Scorpion King; Constantine

Television:

Star Trek Enterprise; Buffy The Vampire Slayer; Alias; C.S.I.; Malcolm in the Middle; Angel; Firefly

Clients include directors J.J. Abrams, Joss Whedon, Steven Soderbergh and Academy Award-winning costume designer Milena Canonero.
