Why did you choose to attend WVU?

I had known for a while that I wanted my professional life to be based in theatre, and WVU had the best program to help me figure out what that was and to thrive in it.

What is your profession now?

Currently, I am a Technical Production MFA graduate Candidate at UNC- Chapel Hill. Prior to that, I had be working professionally for about a decade as either a scenic carpenter/welder, Technical Director, and Production Manager. Just depended on the time of year.

What is your most interesting current/upcoming project?

I'm currently gearing up to TD for PlayMakers Repertory Company's "Your Healing is Killing Me".

How do you feel WVU and the College of Creative Arts prepared you for your career?

My professional career began at WVU. The TD at the time, Josh Frachiseur got me my first opportunity to work for a professional company. WVU provided the doors and the oppurtunities for me to learn how and what I needed to do to begin my professional career.
