Lighting Design is abstract and intangible. You can’t touch it so it can be hard to describe. But, lighting has texture and rhythm and depth.
With every design I want to tell a story with light. I pull meaning from whatever the medium is, text, movement and/or music to support the story and the overall vision of the show. I strive to create an environment that helps the audience understand on a visceral level what is happening. I tell the audience where to look, and how to feel, and when to feel it.
I work best with a strong collaborative team. With people who make specific and visually evocative choices that enable me to do the same. I work best when my creativity is stretched, when I can learn from my collaborators. This makes me a better designer and theatre artist.
