I do event design: lighting, set, media. My experience with event design infuses my creative process in the development of  projects and performances.

Knowledge of lighting, set and media design also informs my teaching practices at the University of Florida  and other institutions  I’ve taught at to this  point. 

I’ve done media design for the Chaffee Planetarium at the Grand Rapids Public Museum, and  created lighting designs for OOUR, Atom-r, the David Herrera Performance Company , the Asian Art Museum, the California Academy of Sciences, SFSketchfest, and Push Dance Company, among others.

I studied Theater Arts at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and was a Fulbright Student Fellow in Scenic Design to Latvia in 2001.  The lessons I learned from Latvian Scenographers like Andris Freibergs and Ieva  Kaulina deeply shifted my relationship to the creative process and its articulation in space.
