Team Dino

Guy Gsell

President and Chief Executive Producer

Heading up the team at Field Station: Dinosaurs is Guy Gsell. An adventurer, teacher and life- long dinosaur lover, Guy has produced educationally themed theater, live events and exhibits in a career that spans thirty years and three continents. As the Founding Director of Discovery Times Square in Manhattan, Guy created sold-out workshops and ancillary programming for the famous “King Tut” exhibit as well as “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition” and “daVinci’s Workshop”. He was a Producer at the 2011 World Science Festival and, for six years, Managing Director of the Two River Theater Company in Red Bank, New Jersey where he launched one of the State’s top theater education programs. He spent twelve seasons touring the world’s theaters and classrooms with the renowned Paper Bag Players, America’s foremost theater company for children. He has taught at the high school and college level, acted off-Broadway, written two plays, appeared on Jeopardy! and appeared at some of New Jersey’s legendary music venues as a singer-songwriter. At the Field Station, Guy is finally able to combine his serious dinosaur obsession with his love for family entertainment, hands-on teaching and working with children.
