A note from the designer...

Hello all!

I am a New York-based Lighting Designer. From a young age I've had a passion for telling stories to audiences, through the years I found a love for the art of lighting design. By using my knowledge of lighting I am able to create a deep connection with my peers and audiences in order to have the most efficient and successful collaborative process that can be. While a majority of my experience has been in both Dance and Theatrical events, I have a great interest in moving into the world of television and film. 

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. I hope you have enjoyed this archive of visual stimulation.

Please feel free to reach out if you'd like to collaborate with me or with any questions or comments!
