I’m a maker of all kinds with a wide range of international experience in theatre and theme park – props, costumes, and tech.
I believe in creative execution, great communication, and on-time delivery.
Who Am I?
Legos. It started with Legos. My love (and later obsession) to build and to make wonderful and fantastical things. In college I changed my major from Physics to Theater Production – I wanted to put my hands on real things and build. I became Technical Director of The University of North Carolina’s undergraduate theater and there I oversaw eight productions and lead about 60 people of varying skill from director’s concept to designer’s final vision. It was there I discovered the excitement and challenge of collaboratively building from an original idea to a physical object.
I extended my training in Australia’s Victorian College of the Arts where I met my now beautiful wife who started her own independent theatre company, Pinball Collective. To be together, we both moved to Singapore and worked on Lion King. Later I became the resident puppet maker for the children’s theatre company I Theater, then Supervisor for the Costume Tech department of Universal Studios Singapore, working with giant dinosaur puppets, underwater mascots, electronic installations and much much more.
The free time I have is devoted to realizing some of my favorite costumes from comics and movies and dabbling in programming, web design, and 3d art. My most recent projects were to revamp this website and build a nine-foot tall bunraku puppet of Iron Giant. The puppet won International Cosplay Day Singapore's Judge's prize and now stomps around on stage for Players Theatre in Singapore.
My passion for making is only reinforced by a constant need to improve. While a challenge, doing so keeps me focused, creative, and open.
