Scenic Design and Assorted Stagecraft

Home: Welcome


I am a recent graduate of Brigham Young University, where I studied scenic and costume design.  For the past four years I have worked as the draftsperson for the BYU scene shop, where my experiences include working closely with the technical director and the scene shop, learning methods of construction and tracking receipts and inventory.  While at BYU, I was involved with 11 theatre productions as lead scenic designer (both student and faculty directed).  I also took classes on scenic design and construction, scenic art, costuming, costume construction, puppetry, and projections.  Currently, I am the Assistant Technical Director at Hale Center Theater Orem where my duties include construction drafting for scenery and managing budgets and purchasing for the scene shop.

Recent Productions

BYU Pride Prejudice Suzy O Photography-83.jpg

Pride and Prejudice

BYU Arts Production, March 2022

In this less traditional retelling of the classic novel, Pride and Prejudice emphasized movement and celebration in every aspect of its creation, creating a narrative that was both moving and playful.  Set on a circular revolving stage framed by elegant translucent drapery, this design aimed for that intersection between gracefulness and energy with a variety of levels made up of the very novels and letters that are so central to the heart of the story.

Zemire et Azor

BYU Opera, October 2021

Zemire et Azor is a lesser known opera adaptation of the classic Beauty and the Beast story.  My first foray into designing for opera, I was able to work with a brand new opera director and collaborate with a team of student puppet designers who created the 10' tall beast puppet central to the narrative.  This project challenged me to work with a smaller budget and to design around the large movements of the puppet.

Illusionary Tales: The Turn of the Screw

BYU Arts Production, April 2021

The second in BYU's Illusionary Tales series, The Turn of the Screw  continued the work we began in Fall 2020 with using projections to social distance our actors.  The project was created for a streaming-only audience and integrated live projected actors with pre-filmed footage and static environment projections.  As a scenic designer, I had the opportunity to design the physical sets, projected environments, and a handful of custom props.

Illusionary Tales:

For Such A Time As This

&  A Tell-Tale Heart

BYU Arts Production, October 2020

Illusionary Tales is a collection of three short, legend-inspired scripts written by local playwrights and commissioned by Brigham Young University: Balete DriveFor Such A Time As This, and A Tell-Tale Heart.  To produce theatre safely under pandemic restrictions, two of three actors were projected onto the playing space using methods we created as a team (from little prior experience) involving heavy experimenting with mockups and projectors.
