Design for community theatre for over 30 years.

About Me

My Background

I've been designing for community theatre since my high school days.  That's me at the (now vintage) Strand Century Lighting console at my high school.  I've used all manner of equipment, in many different venues, since then, some very simple and some very grand.

My primary specialty is lighting design.

My Design Milestones

I've designed for a number of community theatre companies in CT, MA and NH.  I twice received Top Three honors for lighting design at the NH Theatre Awards, and won Best Lighting Design at the 16th NHTA.  I co-founded the Greater Derry Arts Council, and served for many years as the Staff Technical Director for the Derry Opera House.
