What a fun and frustrating challenge this show was – directed by Robert Kramer, starring Michael and Rachel Bouchard, Brian Landis Folkins and Chris Kendall. The script, by Mike Bartlett, describes that the show should have no set, no lights, no sound, no props. What? What?! While that can mean endless possibility, it can also easily cause “deer in the headlights” reaction. Set designer Christopher Waller started off the design team with a fantastic idea to create a cock fighting ring set up in the theater. That risky idea created a unique setting in which I could play with lighting (again, pretty much in the round) against a black and dull metallic background. Robert wanted us designers to have a lot of creative license, so he didn’t push too much with ideas, but did know that he wanted a dark, shadowy design that would cause actors to walk in and out of the light to help drive the scene.Read More »
I shot and edited this fun video for ARTiculate: Real&Clear. We wanted to do a fun spoof video for the holidays, but also make sure to give relevant content that would be beneficial to the audience. The result is fun, was quick to put together, and makes me laugh every time I watch it. Enjoy and Happy Holidays! (And always remember to Merry responsibly 🙂 )Read More »
Wedding officiant and life journey coach Robin Miller is very classy and classic, but also has a fun spark and a wonderfully bubbly personality. I wanted to encompass all of that in her logo, while still focusing on what services she offers. Robin has such fantastic empathy for people, and she truly believes in following their life journey.Read More »
This banner was created as the start of a rebranding and modernization of the Long Island Housing Partnership, graphically.
For this project, I took the pre-existing logo and simplified the rest of the pre-existing banner. The old banner included an image of blueprints as the background, a photo of a home, and more. For this more modern approach, we decided to use simple and sleek graphic representations of groups of houses on either side of the logo.Read More »
Through tons of (unfortunate) politics (not from LIDA) and a long, long daily commute, I recently completed my first show with the LIDA Project. Put on at THEATREWORKS in Colorado Springs, this show was commissioned to remember the 100th anniversary of the Ludlow Massacre, a horrific event in Colorado’s history, that, while not well publicized or taught, was the ignition for a lot of union movement back in the day.
Directed by Brian Freeland, the show took lots of blood, sweat and tears from all involved. SteeVee Dee (Steven Deidel), Scenographer, worked long and hard to try to achieve big results with little resources. It was a fantastic experience co-designing with him on this project.Read More »
