Sound Design, Projection Design, Art Curation, Performance Artist, Musician, Impresario

Welcome to my website!

I’m a San Francisco Bay Area native who has been designing and creating theater professionally since 2010. In 2012 I received my BA from San Francisco State University, where I graduated as Drama Department Honoree. Since then my sound designs have been heard in numerous theaters within the Bay Area and across the nation. Recently, with support from the San Francisco Playhouse, I’ve had the opportunity to study projection design and to incorporate this new element into my career. I’ve received numerous nominations for my design work from Bay Area Theater Critics Circle,  Theater Bay Area, and TSDCA. In 2012 I received the Eric Landisman fellowship grant which identified me as an emerging designer. 

Sound design, which requires active listening,  has guided my approach in my other creative pursuits. In addition to my work as a designer I also devise and curate new theatrical experiences with San Francisco based company Mugwumpin and my own Oakland based company Klanghaus. Started out of pocket in mid 2015, Klanghaus received Theater Bay Area’s CA$H grant in 2016 to fund another year of monthly happenings and continued development of new works.

I strive to bring a flexible, imaginative, and supportive attitude to any creative endeavor I embark on. Each production and collaboration is an opportunity to further develop my craft.

As the cost of living in the San Francisco Bay Area continues to rise and available space dwindles fewer affordable venues are available for budding or alternative performing artists to develop their work. In order to reverse this tide,  two sound designers, Theodore J.H. Hulsker and Matt Stines began hosting a monthly event, Klanghaus, at Theodore’s Oakland residence. In addition to providing a venue for unusual happenings, these events foster, empower and diversify our performing arts community.

It's also a lot of fun. 

At the end of 2015, Klanghaus and its affiliated artists began to develop a multimedia theatrical work that dramatizes our personal experiences with the costs of living and working as artists in the Bay Area. Since then, we have staged two different iterations of A Play About Leaving. The first was during my artist residency at the Light Box in Detroit and the second at the new alternative arts space, and former accordion factory , Fixed Freedom in San Francisco. 

We envision A Play About Leaving as a continually evolving work that examines the commonalities between the struggles of artists working in different environments and cities. In 2016 we received a CA$H grant to take our show to Los Angeles for further development. Look for it this summer!
