AT 19, I MOVED TO LOS ANGELESwhere I did a short stint at Morgan Creek Productions as the Assistant to the SVP & VP of Physical & Post-Production before realizing my heart was in live production and not film. 
Soon, I started freelancing as a Stage Manager & Lighting Designer, landing a regular gig downtown with the
Los Angeles Theatre Center as a Lighting Programmer. 
​Almost a year later, having several credits under my belt by then, I was hired by
The Stella Adler Academy of Actingin Hollywood as the Technical Director, where I managed all three of their stages, designed the lights for school productions, and worked with students to teach them the fundamentals of theatre tech. In 2011 I left both the LATC and Stella Adler for a seasonal job at The Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood as an Electrician, subsequently earning a promotion to Stage Supervisor, all the while working as an independent lighting designer in and around the Los Angeles Metropolitan area.
In the fall of 2012,I took my first touring gig with Mills Entertainment’s production of 'Clifford the Big Red Dog Live!’ as the Stage Manager & Lighting Designer. It was with ‘Clifford’ that I developed a true passion for travelling while practicing my craft. Since then I have had a total of 6 shows tour domestically and internationally with my lighting designs.
During 2014, I was on and off the road with the comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall as their Stage Manager & Lighting Designer for their Rusty & Ready tour. When the tour ended in June, I immediately jumped on board as the Stage Manager for a production of David Harrower's 'Blackbird', directed by Tony nominee Wilson Milam, for a short run in July at the Lovelace Studio at the Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts in Beverly Hills. 
Once Blackbird closed, I was booked to design the lights for
Resurreccion Mexican Folk Dance and Ballet Folklorico Ollin's annual shows. Each show ran one night only in August at the Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood.
From there I went on to design the lights for and launch YouTube sensation
Tyler Oakley's Slumber Party, which opened at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago on October 4th. The tour then went on to tour the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and will be travelling to Austrailia this September.
October and November 2014I spent collaborating with Shannon Cochran on Andrew Hinderaker's "Dirty", which opened at The Zephyr Theatre in West Hollywoodon November 14th for a 6 week run.
The year was rounded out by
Cirque Dreams "Holidaze", which I toured as the Production Stage Manager for one of three domestic tours through December.
January 2015 brought me to Actor/Director Xander Berkeley, who I collaborated with on his
out-of-the-box project "
The Swank Tank" at Six01 Studio in Burbank, CA.
During the spring I found myself in the company of The Kids in the Hall once again as their Production Manager and Lighting Designer. After a very successful 6 week tour of the U.S. and Canada, we were invited back to Town Hall in Times Square for 2 encore performances on June 19th.
In July I was back out with Tyler Oakley's Slumber Partyfor the conclusion of his U.S. tour.
As for August, I've spent the month freelancing in Chicago as a Master Electrician while enjoying a little time off somewhere other than Los Angeles.
This fall
Clifford the Big Red Dog Live! will be hitting the road once again with my lighting design.
Currently I am working as the Production Manager for The Kids in the Hall's performance at Festival Supreme in Los Angeles in October.
I'm also gearing up to hit the road as the Stage Manager & Lighting Director for
John Cleese & Eric Idle Together Again At Last... For the Very First Time, which will be touring for the month of October.

If all the world's a stage, I want better​ lighting.

BORN & RAISED IN LAS VEGAS, I spent the first 12 years of life playing only blocks from The Strip, visiting buffets regularly with my family, and going to plays on school field trips or to concerts with my dad.
In August 1999, we packed up and moved to Charlotte Harbor in Southwest Florida. It was there, 5 years later where I would land my first job as an electrician/stage hand at The Center for Performing Arts & Education in Punta Gorda, FL.
Working in a road house at 16, I quickly adapted to the 
fast paced state of mind and schedule needed to successfully load-in, do a show, and load-out the same day. My ability to roll with the punches quickly earned me a promotion to Lighting Director.
