I am a theatrical lighting designer currently based in the Central Illinois region. I recently became an alumnus of the theatre design and technology Bachelor of Arts program at San Diego State University with an emphasis in lighting design. I have worked in every aspect of lighting design and technology from touring Broadway musicals, to storefront community theatre, to summer stock opera, to rock and roll touring concerts. I have always sought expression through storytelling and artistic excellence. I enjoy being an legislative advocate for educational theatre programs and organized labor, as well as being a member of the technical theatre community overall. In my off time, I loves working on cars and going on long bike rides. I, as well, appreciates the legacy and heritage in what we do, and seek to continue the traditions of technical theatre history.
