FINAL 2.png

with Claire & Scott... collaborating

I am a theatre designer, production manager, stage manager and occasional installation artist who specializes in making larger-than-life ideas totally doable realities.

I strive to create work that combines dramaturgical nuance with technical elegance, whether I am sculpting a lighting gesture, drafting a set, or anticipating the needs of a complex build. 

All my work is collaborative, and nothing excites me more than actualizing creative visions with a team of artists and makers.  I am driven by the conviction that liminal, communal experiences have the power to call out the crimes of our collective past, provide a balm for the chaotic present, and (in the indomitable words of Taylor Mac),  "dream the culture forward." 

There is much dreaming to be done. I would be delighted to do it with you.
