I collaboratively design environments where a story can thrive and the audience can be enraptured seamlessly into the narrative. I savor stories and relish the process of bringing them to life.
Combining my knowledge and skills of scenic design, interior design, and architecture, I have designed productions for professional theatre, film, and art instillations around the country.
