jeff poss

Jeff Poss is an artist, designer, fabricator, and project director with experience in both the exhibition fabrication and film production industries. As a sculptor, he works with foam, fiberglass, and urethane coating systems; rigid and flexible molds and casts; props, effects, steel fabrication, and carpentry. During his 25 years in the museum industry, Jeff has honed his skill in cost and labor projections, construction management, team management, and the nuances of the fabrication process.

He doesn’t want you to know this, but Jeff enjoys crafting a mean spreadsheet almost as much as he enjoys fishing for tarpon around Port Aransas.
