This Page is curated specifically for my application to Meow Wolf. I wanted to represent my work in a different way than I would for a traditional theater and events position. Below I have selected a few projects that I'm particuarly fond of and are better tailored to this application.

Thank you for your consideration,

The goal of this project was to produce one of the most prolific works in the operatic cannon in a way that made the story relatable to a contemporary audience. This led us to mount a slimmed down and modern interpretation of Boheme in an active brewery. We had to source and install all of the elements of our show and work alongside the brewery to ensure that they could still make their beer. I served as the Master Electrician and Lighting Designer.

I worked as an assistant technical director and draftsman for this event production agency. My main responsibilities were keeping the CAD file up to date and producing renderings, build plates, and layout drawings for various events. I also worked onsite managing installation crews and supervising event load in/outs.

I designed and implimented the projections for this event. This piece was written to blur the lines between concert and stage play. The The challenge with this was defining when the design elements were meant to be part of the very DIY concert or to use their fullest potential to heighten the drama of the staged scenes.
