Lighting Designer and Technician
Born and raised in Memphis, TN, I’ve always had a strong connection to the arts. Thanks to my parents, I developed a balanced creative and analytical spirit during my childhood. Once I started attending school at the University of Tennessee, I found that lighting design and technology was the perfect way for me to use both of those aspects of my personality.
Since starting work as a lighting designer and technician, I have had many opportunities to travel and work with a variety creative teams, teaching me the best ways to collaborate. I love to travel and experience new places, so I want to design in as many different states as possible. My favorite kinds of shows are new works, reimagined classics, musicals, and anything that’s a little absurd.
Later in life, I plan to invest in a little yellow house for myself and a fluffy cat or two. I’m also working towards opening an Etsy shop this year to sell handmade crocheted, quilted, and embroidered items. My personal aesthetic tends towards things that are soft, feminine, and floral.
Currently, I am working at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival as an assistant lighting designer.
