What role(s) do you play at the BSP this season?
I am the Scenic Designer for Annie and a scenic Carpenter/Welder
How long have you been at Bigfork Summer Playhouse?
This is my fifth season with the playhouse. I keep coming back because of the Thomsons. This is one of the most inviting and company driven companies I have had the privilege to work for and with. They foster an environment where personal growth and quality are paramount to the process and final product.
Please share your personal history with theatre.
I started in theatre when I was very young. I began attending theatre about as soon as I could sit still. I started out, as most do, as a young performer and then was bitten by the technical bug and decoded to make that my path. I have always had a passion for teaching and working with young artists so the ability to continue to design professionally while also teaching has been a blessing. I have this opportunity in my current position as a faculty member with the University of Northern Colorado.
What is your favorite thing to do in your “off” time while staying in Bigfork?
My wife and I, as well as many friends, love to go to Burger Town and then eat at Wayfarers park by gorgeous Flathead Lake.
What are your plans after the BFSP season ends?
After BSP, I will be returning to Colorado as an Assistant Professor of Theatre with the University of Northern Colorado.
