BFA in BFA Theatre Design/Technology, Minnesota State University

First introduction to the industry:

I first got into theatre in high school. I followed the passion in college and landed a job with Cirque du Soleil. I’ve been involved in live entertainment or film/TV ever since.

What I listen to at work:

Usually, I listen to chill or upbeat electronic stuff while designing. Sometimes I’ll need some hard rock/metal. Just depends on the mood.

Dream Vacation:

I’d like to go lots of places. I think Italy and Germany are pretty high on my list. I’ve never been to Hawaii and I think that needs to change.

When I'm not at work...

I’m wood working, shooting pool or digging deep into flight simulators or other nerdy video games.
