I am a creative story-teller at heart. Stories come in many different forms and can be told using many different mediums. I strive to be excellent in all mediums in order to tell the story that needs to be told in the way it deserves. Sometimes I do it by myself, but more often than not it is through collaboration with other artists. Art makes the world go round, but collaboration makes it spin faster so I try to spend as much time as possible doing that.
Currently, I am the Lighting and Stage Designer at Fellowship Bible Church in Central Arkansas. Fellowship is a multi-venue and multi-campus church, which has afforded me the opportunity to design for 9 different venues across 3 cities. As the only lighting person on staff, I am tasked with maintaining the theatrical lighting systems for each of the 9 spaces, ranging from 50 – 1400 seats. This has made me extremely organized, as it is easy to get things mixed up when juggling so many projects. As the stage designer, I am tasked with not only coming up with the designs but implementing them as well, giving me experience managing small crews in the construction phase. I am also one of the key creatives on a staff of over 100 people.
