Master Carpenter

How long have you been at Bigfork Summer Playhouse?
This is my third season at Bigfork Summer Playhouse. I love returning each year because even though we are working constantly this is the most enjoyable place to work. You can’t beat the scenery when you walk out the door every morning.

Please share your personal history with theatre.
I started performing when I was in High school. From there I moved to a community theatre in my home town and decided to pursue a degree in performance. After two years of being in the acting program I decided to switch over to stage management. As I was graduating, I realized that I didn’t enjoy stage managing. Since I had worked in the scene shop for three years already, I chose to pursue carpentry work. That is when I worked on my first film, “As I Lay Dying.” The next summer I started my first season at BSP.

What is your favorite thing to do in your “off” time while staying in Bigfork?
In my down time in Bigfork I enjoy going to Glacier Park or the river rocks and just enjoying nature. It is absolutely beautiful here and that is something I intend to soak up any time I am here.

What are your plans after the BFSP season ends?
After this season ends I will be starting graduate school at Florida State University pursuing my MFA in Technical Production.
