First introduction to the industry:

My first production—in first grade—was me as Peter Pan. I danced around stage throwing gold glitter from a plastic baggie in my belt and felt magical. In high school, I volunteered for the set crew on one show and fell in love with the technical aspects. After my first summer stock in college, I discovered I could make art as a career, and I’ve never looked back.

What I listen to at work:

Piano jazz, house/techno, hip-hop

Dream Vacation:

I’ve wanted to visit the Seychelles since I was 11; it looks absolutely idyllic.

When I'm not at work...

I’m watching Star Trek (I have seen all 800+ episodes), and when I have the chance I like going camping.
