I grew up in Springfield, VA and I came to UArts because of the location in an urban hub and proximity to New York City. The fact that the professors are also working professionals was a big plus and definitely helped me get my first jobs in the city. I am still in contact with many of my professors and still make professional connections through them.
Since graduating I have worked full-time with many premier Philadelphia theaters including the Wilma Theatre Co, Arden Theatre Co and FringeArts. Since graduating, the most challenging design I have completed was a project called "Feastival". It was a top tier fundraiser that took up an entire city block and required multiple zones of audio. Audi was one of the main sponsors and the company had multiple cars placed around the event that I had to work around. It was a great learning experience.
