After a few months away from posting, it’s time to catch up! I’ll be listing current, upcoming and past events.
Next weekend, I have the honor of designing the lighting for Ice Theatre of New York‘s Fall Benefit and Gala at Chelsea Pier’s Sky Rink. Marrying my love of theatre, dance and skating, an ice surface provides a wonderful canvas to paint with light and create atmosphere that supports the extraordinary skaters and choreography.
Fort Lauderdale is the Venice of the US! We recently worked with Jack Nolan and The Impression Group South to bring a bit of summer to NYC by staging a two day activation at The Shops at Columbus Circle. Hosted by style expert Lilliana Vasquez, a cozy cabana environment let guests relax and enjoy energetic fashion shows, make-overs and trivia contests.
There’s no place like Radio City Music Hall and sitting in the first row for the Christmas Spectacular this past Sunday made it even more special.
My first professional job in NYC was skating (on the orchestra pit) in the summer show at RCMH (which they are reviving next summer).
The current Christmas Show is terrific and the Rockettes are better than ever!
