BIO

I was born and raised in Iowa City, IA. I was involved with nearly every theatre venue in Iowa City throughout high school. I earned my Eagle Scout Award with my final project being at a historic country church outside Iowa City. I got involved with their board of directors and helped to put together a fundraising event to replace the roof on the 100+ year old building. I came to DeKalb in 2003 to attend NIU where I was in the BFA Tech program in the School of Theatre & Dance to become a Lighting Designer. In 2004 I was fortunate to be one of two people chosen for a prestigious internship at the American Dance Festival at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina where I was the Master Electrician for the main theatre for the summer and worked with dance companies from around the world. I started working at the Egyptian Theatre part-time as the Technical Director while attending school. In 2006 the past Executive Director left and the Egyptian Theatre Board of Directors approached me about becoming the new Director. I have been the Executive Director since 2006. I work with a number of local high schools in their theatres with productions or training. I have guest taught a few classes at the Illinois Institute of Art, have been a guest presenter at multiple NIU classes on non-profits, and have presented twice at the annual national conference for the League of Historic American Theatres. In my spare time I do enjoy traveling and touring other historic theatres around the country. I currently am the President of the board of the DeKalb Area Arts Council, President of the board for State Street Dance in Geneva, IL, Secretary of the board for the DeKalb County Convention and Visitors Bureau, a board member of the Illinois Local Arts Network, board member of DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership, a board member for Proudly DeKalb, Inc, and on multiple community committees. Recipient of BoardSource Leadership Certificate for Nonprofit Chief Executives.
