My decision to get my MFA from Northwestern University was a commitment to myself as an artist along my path as designer and one day as an educator. While pursuing my BFA in Technical Theatre as an undergrad, I designed numerous productions for the Kitchen Theatre, a small 77 seat theatre in downtown Ithaca, NY. Since completing my BFA, I have continued to design in small spaces such as Silk Road and Stage Left while primarily earning a living as a technician.

I work well as a team player and foster a sense of safety and positive energy within my production team. I am detail-oriented and thorough in my work, striving for the highest possible aesthetic. I look at each show as an opportunity to form new relationships, develop my work, and undertake artistic explorations which would be invaluable to me.

In addition to developing myself as a designer, I also enjoy teaching people. I spend my summers working at Trollwood Performing Arts Center where I have the opportunity to work with students of all ages in their explorations of the arts. Beyond my summer position, I have also had the pleasure of teaching a Lighting Design course for Northwestern which both the students and I found very rewarding and look forward to teaching more courses along these lines in my future.

I hope you enjoy looking through the photos of some of my past work and please feel free to contact me via the Contact page.
