ABOUT EMILY...

I believe theatre has such an individual voice which connects directly to the type of work I want to be doing--art that speaks with purpose. As I navigate through my career, I desperately want to use our unique platform to say something. A big part of that is working with artists who are eager to collaborate and make something greater.

I graduated from Eastern Michigan University in 2012 with a B.S. in Entertainment Design and Technology, with a primary focus in lighting design. After graduating I moved to Richmond, VA where I worked as a freelance designer. I received my M.F.A from the University of Arkansas in May, 2017. 

Upon moving to New York City I commenced my time as the 2017 Hemsley Intern. I have made NYC my home, and am a freelance designer and associate here. Recently named one of LDI Magazine's 30-Under-30 Designers, I am in a constant state of attempting to live up to the honor.
