I have designed award-winning lighting for shows, concerts, events and attractions on five continents, playing every type of venue imaginable in a career that now spans two centuries.  It is from this lifetime of experience and wealth of varied productions that I draw creative inspiration for every project.


After working in TV, designing operas and musicals, I spent fifteen years of my career lighting concerts for major artists.  During that time, and after, I also lit countless tours, arena shows, events for the Walt Disney Company, The NBA, NHL, and  NFL, independent producers, corporations, and creative services companies world-wide.  And, of course, I’ve been involved with a host of unique projects that are hard to classify. 


My work tends to be large-scale and my clients long-term.


For the past several years I have been the Lighting Director for the Radio City

Christmas Spectacular, all their tours, and new projects for the Rockettes.


In addition to exciting, innovative design, intuitive theatrical judgment and efficiency, I also bring to every project a good sense of humor, a can-do spirit, and a cohesive team of associates; all dedicated, artistic professionals


I am always interested in new and challenging opportunities.  If you would like to discuss a project, please contact me at the link below.
