BIOGRAPHY


I was thoroughly impressed at his depth of knowledge and experience of all things theatrical (lighting, sound, scenery, production, organization of cast, etc.) from the perspective of a performer and a director. In the show that I performed, his passion and professionalism was clearly evident as the finished product was quite spectacular!
