What is your favorite part of your job?

Not a day is the same. I especially enjoy when there’s crossover props, having to work closely with costumes, lights or sound to achieve the result.

Why is Two River Theater special to you?

Two River is like no other theater I worked for. There is this true sense of family. I also enjoy the fact that it is avant-garde and not afraid to try new things.

What was your favorite production to work on and why?

I liked working on Love in Hate Nation. It was a work-in-progress through out the whole process. I enjoy having to adjust to changes in the production.

If you could go back and work on a production before your time at Two River, what would it be?

Any August Wilson plays. There’s always such an attention to set dressing. I also would love to have the opportunity to work with David Gallo. We collaborated on a new play few years back called “Beatsville”.

What’s your favorite Red Bank restaurant and menu item?

Tino’s Mexican Kitchen on Shrewsbury. They cook their meat on an open wood fire. Exquisite!

What’s your favorite thing to do/hobby outside of work?

Scuba diving, hiking and kayaking.
