What I Do at SSU

I am a Faculty Technical Director which means I oversee the mounting of the Theatre and Music Departments' shows (oh so easy to say). While teaching Tech/Design students the skills and craftsmanship to bring their visions to life. The classes I teach include Stagecraft; Set, Light, and Costume Design; Stage Management; Advance Design; and History of Ornament.
