I am committed to the creation of collaborative and socially conscious work for live performance, the built environment and public space. With a keen focus on the development of light as a character, I am constantly exploring ways to sustain my work outside of traditional venues. I am also a passionate educator, teaching design at the graduate level and leading executive education workshops around movement for design and creative team management. As a freelance architectural lighting designer, I have experience engaging in projects of varying sizes and typologies and bring my passion for theatre production through all phases of design development and construction.
Since 2007, I have been an Artistic Associate with Pig Iron Theatre Company and have had the pleasure of collaborating with artists, directors and choreographers such as Rennie Harris, John Jasperse, Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Michael John Garces, Bill Shannon, Reggie Wilson, Antony Rizzi, David Szlasa, Sara Shelton Mann, and Thaddeus Phillips. In 2005 I co-founded Mlab as a laboratory for innovations and design technologies in the live arts, realizing numerous scenic, light, and video designs specifically tailored for efficient and sustainable touring.
My work has been presented throughout the US and internationally at venues ranging from Lincoln Center and the Staatstheater in Kassel, Germany to an abandoned Rite Aid and the rural Pennsylvania forest. Other venues include the Walker Center, Yerba Buena Benter for the Arts, REDCAT, ACT Seattle, Yale Repertory Theatre, Kimmel Center Philadelphia, The New Victory Theatre, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Peacock Theatre, ZKM Karlsruhe, Whitney Museum Altria, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and a myriad of national and international festivals.
