I am Trans*(everything) New York based lighting designer and theater maker.
I like to make projects that are unapologetically honest (emotionally, politically, conceptually, visually, textually, sonically)
I gravitate towards strong visual choices that keep the performer at the center of event.
I love harsh industrial lighting as much as saturated glam and the most delicate romantic flicker.
The longer I do it, the more I find that lighting design is mostly the art of listening (to the room, to your collaborators, to the "text," to the audience ... )
My work in direct action activism instilled in me a deep belief in the power of building intentional community.
I was raised by radical Catholics, so I believe in kindness and compassion, first, above all.
Let's collaborate some time!
