Born in Evansville, Indiana, I am currently attending the University of Cincinnati, CCM to pursue a Master's of Fine Arts Degree in Lighting Design and Technology. I recently obtained a Bachelor's of Science in Lighting Design, Theatre Arts at the University of Southern Indiana. I have had the pleasure to work with many talented designers and directors throughout my undergraduate degree. Working on projects from plays and musicals, to ballet, opera, film and more, I love the never ending challenge that the entertainment world presents; and the opportunity to work on something new with each project. I strive to create cohesive works that draw attention when necessary, and are subtle simultaneously; lighting that evokes emotion and assists the audience to better understand the show without them being conscious of this fact. I hope to create designs that pull from each aspect of a show: the script/libretto, the scenery, the music, the costumes, the direction, and the action, and help to highlight each in their own way.
