His previous positions in design include detailer for Architecture Is Fun and Chicago Scenic Studios. In addition, Lashford has a background in set design and has worked on several productions in the Chicago area, according to the release.

“I am excited to join the team at Cape Fear Museum of History and Science.

I look forward to using my experience in creating hands-on learning environments and educational interactives to continue engaging our visitors,” Lashford said in the release.

Lashford earned his bachelor’s degree in theater arts set and lighting design from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia.

“We are delighted to welcome Simon to our team at Cape Fear Museum,” Museum Director Sheryl Kingery Mays said in the release. “We are fortunate to attract a well-rounded design professional with the background and experience to support our mission of interpreting objects relating to the history, science and cultures of the area and making them available to the public through informative exhibitions."
