Assistant Technical Director
I am currently in my third year as the Assistant Technical Director for the Virginia Stage Company (2008-09 season and 2009-10 season), a LoRT D theatre in Norfolk, VA. I am responsible for a shop staff of 3 (2 carpenters and 1 intern). I also assist with the drafting and budgeting of each show. Because we are so close to the rivers in our lovely theater downtown, and our basement resides below sea level, I am also an expert flood cleaner-upper! Below are my portfolio pages from Virginia Stage Company’s 2008-09 season, though unfortunately there are no pictures from our various bouts with floods, so you will just have to take my word on that one!
I also was employed as the Assistant Technical Director for Cortland Repertory Theatre’s 2007 summer season. I was responsible for keeping organized a fairly cozy shop (most building happened outdoors, although our theatre- which was a half hour away- was an indoor space) and the supervision of 3 shop members (2 carpenters and 1 intern), as well as the education and supervision of 6 performance interns, who rotated through the scene shop each show in pairs.
