the exploration of ideas that did not exist until everyone is in the room

"My process begins and ends with the story - what should the audience walk away from the production with? In the words of an undergraduate professor Steve Burch “Why this piece? Why now?” How do we make it relevant to the audience? Everything is measured against this rod - how does this choice help us tell this story better than any other one we can make?


To this process of dramaturgy and understanding of the theatrical process I add rich strokes of skillful model making and creative instincts driven by character and experimentation in the white card model, infusing my work with a new perspective while employing digital tools such as Photoshop, InDesign, and CAD to convey strong concepts.


I strive to interpret period detail through a dramatic lens - taking the bits that best serve and mixing in hints of other spices to serve the audience a sumptuous feast. I consider not only the space as a set designer, but also the people who inhabit it as a designer of character and costume. I conceive a space with its own history while supporting the narrative of a piece into which interesting, engaging characters can breath life into a story.

As artist we should not set out to try and create something ground breaking, instead we should set out to move people with our work to the point that the resulting stampede breaks the ground. Above all, you have to make space in your life for people, because without living our own life we cannot hope to impact the lives of others."
