As an inspirer of mine, Mimi Lien, once said, “… the reason that we do theatre is to be able to see something different and see something differently.” I reflect on this idea often as I learn and work.

I am excited by the world of theatre and the art that we create. It is always my goal to tell the story as truthfully and still as creatively as possible, inviting the audience to look into another life. While undertaking the responsibilities and the pleasures of a designer, I enjoy collaboration and I understand the meaning of deadlines.

I try to capture the essence of the emotion of the play within each of my designs, expressing it evocatively while aspiring to create a world truly unique to the characters that inhabit it. I enjoy working with color and strive to use it in interesting and effective ways within my scenery.
