I am from Houston, Texas, and am Director of Production at Alliance Theater, Atlanta, Georgia.

Before coming to the Alliance, I served as the Director of Production at the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, and previous to that I was the Associate Production Manager at Baltimore Center Stage.

Prior to working in production management, I spent ten years working as a technical director at various colleges across the country, including the University of Texas, University of South Florida, and others. I have also worked all over the United States at various summer stock theatres including Williamstown Theatre Festival, Utah Shakespeare Festival, and Opera Theatre of St. Louis.

I serve as commissioner of the Management Commission and as a member of the IDEAS committee for the United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT), a national organization that promotes dialogue, research, and learning among practitioners of theatre design and technology and includes members at all levels of their careers.

I am also one of the co-chairs of the IDEAS and membership committees for the United States Production Managers Forum, which is the network for Production Managers of non-profit theatre, dance, and opera companies and educational theatres in North America.

I received my MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his BFA from the Sargent Conservatory at Webster University.
