In addition to professional theater production, for several years, I have been a Leader and Teacher in the Keene State College Theater Department specializing in lighting and in the scene shop.

I am an experienced Lightwright 5® user and have an understanding of Vectorworks®. While working at Peterborough Players I mentor and manage a crew of 4 to 6. At Keene State College I have managed a classroom of 15 plus. During load ins I teach and manage a crew of 7 or more. I am expert at maintaining plots and other maintenance required for any show. I have basic knowledge of wiring practicals and am familiar with the ETC Express.
