I joined the Theatre Department as technical director in 2013. Prior to that I worked as technical director for the Department of Theater and Dance at University of California Santa Barbara, and as technical director and production manager at Appalachian State University. During that time I have been a technical director and designer on shows including Eurydice by Sara Ruhl, The Illusion by Tony Kushner, and Metamorphoses by Mary Zimmerman.

Professionally, I have worked as technical director for the American Dance Festival's 2010 season and as a master carpenter for Utah Shakespeare Festival's 2011-2012 seasons. I am a proud member of the United States Institute for Theatre Technology.
