Master Carpenter in the Production Department | Since April 2005

What is your favorite part of your job?

The moment the actors first see the work we’ve done to create the world they will be living in.

Why is Two River Theater special to you?

There is such a fantastic family atmosphere. I feel like all of us are committed to the work, and the people working there are just plain fun!

What was your favorite production to work on and why?

Macbeth because I learned so much about welding, illusion, and the importance of magic and comic moments, even in a tragedy.
