CURRENTLY ON TOUR WITH The Girl From The North Country NATIONAL TOUR
BUT ALWAYS OPEN TO DISCUSSING WHAT'S NEXT...
CURRENT & RECENT PROJECTS:
Girl From the North Country
2023 - 2024 National Tour
GM: Foresight Theatrical
Lighting Design by Mark Henderson, AssocLD: Vivien Leone
Current Position. A 4 Truck, First National Tour. Unique in that no followspots are used, and FOH Mac Encores provide the 'front light'. Less gear doesn't always mean easier. In fact, in requires more precision and purpose for each unit & each focus point.
2022 - 2023 National Tour
Disney Theatrical Group
Lighting Design by Natasha Katz, AssocLD: Brandon Rosen
A 10 truck production doing primarily one-week sits throughout the US & Canada. Trusses, Lighting Ladders, Footlights & GroundRows. In addition, the lighting department includes a variety of set electrics, streamers, fog&CO2 special effects and video/projection.
My Fair Lady
2019-2020-2021 First National Tour
Lighting Design by Don Holder, Assoc LD: Karen Spahn
An 8 truck production of the Lincoln Center show. A fairly typical touring rig of trusses, lighting ladders, rovers & set electrics. Approx 70 moving lights to focus & maintain, including a larger than average FOH LX hang. We're using City Theatrical's new Multiverse technology to control FOH and set electrics- including the Higgins Study (a variety of sconces), lampposts (LED Tape), and the Pub (LED Birdies).
Ogunquit Playhouse - 2021 Summer
HEAD ELECTRICIAN / ELEC DEPT SUPERVISOR
Spamalot, Margaritaville, Mystic Pizza, & Youth Programming
Lighting Design by Rich Latta
For the Summer of 2021, Ogunquit Playhouse built a custom outdoor pavilion space to produce their shows. The lighting system was entirely rented from PRG rather than using Ogunquit's indoor inventory. Meanwhile, we continued the Ogunquit's tradition of extensive set electrics - thousands of 12vdc 2811 LED pixel nodes, pucks and tape, sACN on wireless systems, and plenty of other festoons & CO2 and tiny fogger effects.
Jesus Christ Superstar
2019-2020 National Tour
Lighting Design by Lee Curran, Associate LD: Ryan O'Gara
Built in Fall of 2019, this tour was a recreation/import of a similar production in the U.K. (and once seen at Chicago Lyric). Unique technical challenges including installing tourable set electrics into a set we didn't see until the very last minute at tech. In addition, we used ETC's Dimmer doubling technology to achieve maximum flexibility of the plethora of Source4 Pars.
Santa Fe Opera - 2019 Summer
La Boheme, The Pearl Fishers, Cosi Fan Tutte, Jenufa, The Thirteeth Child & Various Other Events
A member of a lighting team that consisted of lighting director, 3 lighting supervisors, myself, an AME, shop electrician, programmer, video tech & then 8 student/early career apprentices. We had 5 guest designers (1 for each show). Each show had unique needs in regards to set electrics, HMI Rovers, and/or pyrotechnics. All shows ran in full rep, so daily changeovers and focus were a large unique process in this outdoor (with roof) venue.
