I am a multifaceted designer specializing in light, performance and temporary environments who is committed to a collaborative and socially conscious practice. Inspired by a background in theatre and dance, I bring improvisation, story telling, and cultural inquiry to the design of constructed environments and the conditions that support a shared experience.
Currently a lighting designer with Buro Happold Engineering, I am also an Artistic Associate with Pig Iron Theatre Company in Philadelphia and teach workshops around movement for design and creative team management. In 2005 I co-founded the design laboratory, Mlab, which realized numerous production designs specifically tailored for efficient and sustainable touring. Recent artistic collaborations include work with John Jasperse, Reggie Wilson, Rennie Harris, Mark Bamuthi Joseph, Mark DeChiazza, Johannes Wieland, Sara Shelton Mann, Bill Shannon, Thaddeus Phillips, Rainpan 43, Pete M Wyer and eighth blackbird. I hold a double MFA in Lighting Design and Transdisciplinary Design from Parsons the New School for Design.
