Effective lighting design has the ability to enhance any production and progress the storytelling of a script. Lighting can control what the audience sees and does not see. Lighting can influence how the audience feels and sees certain events or characters. Lighting can inform the audience clearly but subtly, giving clarity to the story. Effective lighting design can take a production to the next level and raise the production value of any event or performance.
I entered into this career as a lighting designer as it enables me to be creative in ways that are unlike any other. I can form and fine tune how an audience experiences and perceives a production. It allows me to collaborate with a director and other designers to give a production a direction and enhance the deeper meaning of the show in subtle and artistic ways, as well as in some not so subtle ways. It provides me with a sense of creative satisfaction that is unique to a career in the arts.
Ever since I designed my first show in 2016, I knew I was hooked on the feeling of creative satisfaction. While freelancing, I pursued and completed a BFA in Entertainment Lighting Design and Technology, giving me the ability to increase my educational knowledge of the craft, while simultaneously directly exposing myself into the local industry.
Currently, I am the Lead Designer and Draftsman, as well as Operations Manager for HD Live! HD Live! is a consulting and management company, working in audio/visual installations for various venues, production management and design for tours, festivals, and various events, as well as and providing specialized CAD, design, engineering, and labor services for various other A/V companies.
With an incredible pool of colleagues of some of the best in the world, I continue to freelance around the nation in lighting design, production design, and production management. My team of highly trained colleagues further diversifies available services we can offer, ranging the full spectrum of production design and technology. My team and I would love to know how I can help you pull off your next large scale event!
