    About me

    SUMMARY:

    I have designed lighting and scenery, and worked as an associate or assistant designer, for opera, theatre, dance, and television in both the US and Australia over a 15-year career in live entertainment. In addition to my design work, I am an experienced technical director, production manager, and project manager.

    DESIGN APPROACH:

    I love stories - experiencing them, telling them, and creating them.

    As a Lighting and Scenic Designer, I tell stories by sculpting space with light and shape. With other creative team members, I shape the world of a production and the perception of its audience members. Good design enhances the collective efforts of the production team and performers, integrating all parts of a production into a deeper, richer experience for audiences.

    I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Design, and a Master of Fine Arts in Stage Design from the University of Idaho.
