Composing with Color and Light: Storytelling through Art and Science is an exploration of all of theatrical productions that I designed within the Master of Fine Arts program at the University of South Carolina, with a concentration in Lighting Design and focuses on the design process from beginning to end. Each production had its own set of challenges and lessons that have prepared me for more professional design opportunities as my career expands around the world. Each University of South Carolina production presented specific and unique challenges. From paperwork, to learning and understanding how to communicate with a team and knowing that theatre is a collaborative job.
