“...imagine how hurt you would be to see other people express more care for replaceable material objects than for the lives of your loved ones. How hurt you must be to protest like this in the middle of a pandemic. Imagine the exhaustion of fighting against the same state violence that your ancestors fought against.”

— Letters for Black Lives




I am a light­ing designer for theater, opera, dance, and music. I am based in Berlin, and work internationally.
Informed by a rigorous background in art photography and a passion for music, I often think of lighting design as four-dimensional composition: sculptural, pictorial, and musical at the same time; an all-encompassing vehicle for a communal event.
My work is grounded in dramaturgy and driven by the occasion; it encompasses a wide range of forms and aesthetics developed through enduring collaborations.
