About Me

Working in New York City since the Fall of 1993, I have worked in the Broadway, Off-Broadway and Regional Theater arenas.


Graduated from the University of Missouri at Kansas City with an MFA in Scenic Design.  I studied with John Ezell.  I was the recipient of a Hall Family Foundation Scholar.


In addition, I have a MA in Theater from The University of Central Missouri plus a BA from Drury University in Speech and Dramatic Arts & Art History.


Originally from Independence, Missouri-the land of Harry S. Truman where I went to Truman High School and was encouraged my senior year by my "drama" teacher to become a Set Designer.  I literally went from the end of football season to play rehearsal of "Summer and Smoke".


I am the Managing Principal at Studio HIP Landscape Architecture where I apply my skills as designer and management. 


AND finally, I wrote and illustrated a Children's Picture book published in 2014, "Jimmy Jack Gets a New Job". 

Resume

To date I've had the pleasure to work on sixteen Broadway productions as an Associate or Assistant Scenic Designer.
