About Us

Mike Wallace

Weaver 4’s founder and principal, Mike Wallace, leverages more than two decades of design and construction experience to provide comprehensive creative solutions for our clients.  Trained in architecture at the University of Florida, Mike began his career in residential and commercial construction before discovering the Themed Entertainment Industry and joining the talented team at Universal Studios.

Over the following ten years at Universal Studios Art & Design and Universal Creative, Mike served as a scenic designer, set decorator, graphic designer, art director, architectural designer, facility design manager, and conceptual master planner for some of the industry’s most acclaimed projects including Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter:  Diagon Alley, Volcano Bay Water Theme Park, Universal Studios Beijing, and Super Nintendo World.

Following his tenure at Universal, Mike joined Falcon’s Creative Group as Creative Director to lead the planning and design of marquee projects like Katmandu Park, Punta Cana; HALO: Outpost Discovery; and Qiddiya Water Theme Park.

Having developed experiential content for nearly every continent and market around the globe, Mike departed Falcon’s in 2020 and was quickly asked to help establish Harves Global Entertainment, an international design firm with its sights set on bringing Location-Based Entertainment products to guests in China, the Middle East, Africa, and beyond.

After developing repeatable, sustainable concepts and overseeing the opening of the first brick and mortar entertainment venues for Manchester United Football Club and Cloudco Entertainment, Mike transitioned the management of Harves Global Entertainment to its overseas partners and set about the formation of Weaver 4 Studios.  

With the new goal of offering reliable and efficient solutions to the widest array of creative problems, Mike and Weaver 4 now operate as strategic advisors and design partners to our industry’s best and brightest companies, analysts and master planners to a growing list of international clients, and creative innovators wherever they might be of service.
