I'm relentless in helping directors and choreographers achieve their vision. Once I'm committed to a project, I'm all in. I believe in Mies van der Rohe's dictum that "God is in the details" and my best design work is a testament to this philosophy. Ultimately, I'd like to think I'm a conceptual designer with a clear and singular point-of-view. This all derives from a process. As an artist, you must dedicate your life to the process, or you're dead.
