ABOUT ME

Thanks for visiting my site. I am currently based out of Los Angeles but I started my career in Chicago over twenty years ago.  I've had to fortune to design at theaters such as Oregon Shakespeare, The Alley, Steppenwolf, The Goodman, Denver Center, Utah Shakespeare, Hartford Stage, Dallas Theater Center, South Coast Repertory, Milwaukee Repertory, Pasadena Playhouse, Lookingglass, and LaJolla Playhouse, among others.  My work has also been seen in China, Italy, Spain, Scotland, and Ireland.

While a versatile designer, my work tends to pay special attention to color and composition and while I love many of the classics, I also especially enjoy working on new scripts.

Previous awards have included the 2003 Michael Maggio/ Michael Merrit Emerging Designer Award, a 2016 Sage Award, a 2014 Column Award, and a 2010 Joseph Jefferson Award. 

I have served as a Professor of Lighting Design at The University of California, Irvine since 2007.
