I discovered theatre at a very young age. My early experiences of doing theatre with my family drew me into a world that would eventually shape my life and career. When I reached high school, I had decided that theatre would be my life's work. It was a time of hardship for me emotionally, and theatre was my outlet to express myself. What I had not yet realized was the direction I would take. I saw myself as an actor, but it wasn't until college that I discovered who I really was, a designer. The big question is always, why do you do theatre? I can't not do theatre. theatre is in my blood. I have this innate desire to create and learn, and theatre feeds these desires. With those desires in mind, my goal is to create something that is exciting, provoking, and inspiring. I create because I feel it is one of the only ways people will learn. Theatre isn't a hobby for me, it's an extension of who I am. Currently, I am finishing my junior year at Keene State College, where I will graduate in May 2013 with a BA in Design and Technical Theatre. The depth of the KSC program gave me the opportunity to gain experience in all aspects of production and I was able to participate in many roles. I have worn many hats during my education, which has allowed me to easily communicate with people I work with. I recently finished Stage Managing The Rocky Horror Show at Keene State College in November. Recently, I just finished sound designing Rashomon at Keene State College, which went up at the end of February.
