Roll The Bones 

I serve as a partner and Design Director to Roll the Bones Theater Co. It brings everything I do creatively to the table. Graphic and environmental design work. Sound, lighting, and scenic design. I've been able to learn while doing alongside some of the brightest theater makers in the business. One of my goals after leaving The Times was to be featured in it one day as an artist. Our most recent production checked that box.

I'm currently responsible for a Roll the Bones re-brand

and overseeing implementation of the new identity digitally

and in print.

Scenes from Roll The Bones' EcoDao, 2022

A immersive audio installation and performance.

I was responsible for sound design and video.

The piece used spacial audio and live performance to distort an audience member perception of space and time. You'd leave with goosebumps, I promise.

In 2023, we created Dead Letter No. 9, a novel experience for New Yorkers that blended excellent food and drink, with nightlife programing and an interactive experience at the center of it all.
