ABOUT ME:

I COME FROM A FAMILY OF ARTISTS - MY MOTHER IS AN INTERIOR DESIGNER AND MY FATHER IS A WOODWORKER AND MUSICIAN, SO I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SURROUNDED BY MUSIC AND ART. THEY INSTILLED IN ME AN INTEREST IN THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TWO, AND I OFTEN USE MUSIC AS A TOOL TO CONNECT TO A PIECE OF THEATRE.

 

THEATRE, TO ME, IS AN INCREDIBLY INTIMATE AND EXCITING ART FORM. SOME OF THE MOST ENGAGING AND EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCES OF MY LIFE HAVE BEEN IN THE THEATRE, AND I HOPE TO CREATE ATMOSPHERES AND SPACES THAT CAN PROVIDE THOSE EXPERIENCES FOR OTHERS.

 

I’M CURRENTLY BASED IN NEW YORK, HAVING RECENTLY GRADUATED FROM ITHACA COLLEGE WITH A B.F.A. IN THEATRICAL PRODUCTION ARTS (DESIGN CONCENTRATION). SOME OF MY RECENT WORK INCLUDES LIGHTING DESIGN FOR MARISOL AND SCENIC DESIGN FOR TWELFTH NIGHT AT ITHACA COLLEGE.

 

OUTSIDE OF THEATRE, I AM INTERESTED IN MODERN AND POP ART, AND I REALLY ENJOY GETTING LOST IN A GOOD BOOK - AT THE MOMENT I'M WORKING THROUGH BLACK LEOPARD RED WOLF BY MARLON JAMES. IN ANY OTHER FREE TIME I CAN FIND, I ALSO ENJOY PLAYING DUNGEONS & DRAGONS - IT'S A FANTASTIC CREATIVE OUTLET AND A TON OF FUN!
