Production Manager – Associate Artist
When I moved to Williamstown in 2004, I told my Berkshire friends that I was a “retired” Scenic Designer from NYC. I had had some success in the city, designing for Juilliard and The Acting Company, but the “glass grid” had recently knocked me out hard, along with the events of September, 2001, so I left NYC not knowing if Theatre really had a place in our post 9/11 world. In 2010, I met Kristen van Ginhoven. She told me about her idea for WAM and how theatre could have a direct, measurable impact on people’s lives. I jumped on board that train and never looked back! I designed the set for “The Melancholy Play” and found an artistic home. WAM Theatre literally saved my life as a female Scenic Designer, and to make that gift even sweeter, the work we do directly impacts the lives of other women and girls. It’s why I’m a true WAMazon and grateful member of the WAMily. I’ve been an Associate Artist and WAM’s Scenic Designer on every one of their main stage productions, with the exception 2019’s production of “Pipeline,” and that was due to Kristen and I traveling to The Arena Stage and Dallas Theatre Center with our encore “Ann” production. I love this company with everything I am because it has literally shaped who I am. Thank you WAM!
