I worked closely with the scenic designer
Peter J. Davison to interpret his models and sketches for the creation of CAD ground plans, sections, elevations and details for a stage production of Disney's Aladdin. I successfully provided computer translation services between the three CAD programs - AutoCAD, Microstation and Vector Works- used by various parties. Aladdin is currently running in Los Angeles.

With the scenic and architectural designer
Mark Fisher
I developed concepts for the Muse Ship project, a floating entertainment, culture, and education experience that will dock in various ports around the world. Various inflatable and tensile fabric structure enclosures for the top deck performance arena were explored. Speed of erection, resistance to extreme weather , the development of changeable opaque to translucent fabrics and the utilisation of the structural elements for support of lighting and sound equipment were paramount in the design process. Studies were carried out in physical models, sketches and 3D CAD drawings.

Prior to relocating to London I built sets for the WPA Theatre in New York. I also produced hand drawn technical drawings for the
Wooster Group
for one of their touring production.
