Biography

I'm thrilled that you've made it this far! Here's some more about me: I have my MFA in Scenic Design from Florida State University and I have extensive experience as a scenic, lighting, and projection designer professionally as well as in academic settings as a professor. Teaching, learning, and experimenting are at the core of my theatrical philosophy. For example, I'll sketch, paint, and build models for productions all via traditional media and I'm perfectly at home teaching those techniques as well. Keeping those skills sharp is important. When appropriate, I'll also draw and paint digitally, build computer models, and use 3D printing to convey my designs. Using and teaching these tools is equally important as their traditional counterparts, and my personal sense of curiosity and urge to learn help keep me current in my craft. Because I feel strongly about teaching as a way of collaborating in theatre, I have extensive experience managing and collaborating with groups both large and small, professionals and newcomers alike. Adapting my communication to serve that variety of audiences has made it possible to succeed artistically, professionally, and personally.

Why Stritch?

"I had the pleasure of completing my undergraduate degree at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. For me, Stritch is an environment like my alma mater in which students are free to claim their education and push themselves in whatever direction of enquiry or artistic endeavor they choose with the support of a family of colleagues and instructors.
