Luna Stage Company

Production Manager & Lighting Designer 

I was on staff at Luna from 2005-2008. All the shows featured below are during my tenure as production manager. I worked alongside with the crews I hired installing electrics, rigging, building and painting the shows. 
I also worked closely with the artistic director & managing director particularly on budgeting for the season and managing the production budget for each show/event. In addition I also did the lighting design for the following productions featured below; The Normals, The Confessions of Stepin Fetchit , Nocturne, The New Moon Director's Lab, Sesame Workshop Fundraiser: Luna Stage Welcomes Elmo & Gordon
