My thirty years in the theatre have included stops with the OpenStage Theatre, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, the San Jose Repertory Theatre, the Berkeley Shakespeare Festival, the American Conservatory Theatre, the La Jolla Playhouse, the Utah Shakespeare Festival and Little Theatre of the Rockies.  I have taught at the University of California, San Diego, Southern Utah University and the University of Northern Colorado.  A high point was designing and building scenery for the performance artist, Eleanor Antin both for Whitney Museum installations and full-length video productions, Loves of a Ballerina, The Last Night of Rasputin and Man Without a World.  Some set designs include Oklahoma! and The King and I for the Greeley Community Theatre Troupe, Tintypes, Enter Laughing, Look Homeward Angel and Peter Pan for UNC/LTR, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever and The Prisoner of Second Avenue for SUU, Ladies of the Alamo for the North Coast Repertory Company, The Trial of the Cantonsville Nine for the San Jose Repertory Company and numerous shows for OpenStage Theatre as well as the unit set used for five years at the Berkeley Shakespeare Festival.  Though most of my career has been spent in theatre and in the scene shop, my first love and major was history, which I studied at Colorado State University, South Asia Studies at the University of Minnesota, and Theatre History at the University of Northern Colorado.  I recently retired as the Technical Director at UNC/LTR and am now Adjunct Faculty, teaching Introduction to Theatre and Playscript Analysis.  Last year I designed and built The One Eyed Man is King for OpenStage Theatre and the One Act operas, Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi for UNC Opera Theatre.  My real education and joy have come from my wife, Mary Lucas, Scenic Artist at UNC and my three children.  Jessica is a recent graduate of the University of Scranton with a degree in Theatre, who actually has a paying job with benefits in the Arts.  Evan has a degree in Microbiology from CSU, just got married and is, of course, unemployed, and Eliot is currently a  Freshman English major at UNC and has a Work-Study job at the English Computer Lab.  All three have had their first jobs with LTR. So I guess we are officially “empty-nesters”, depending on employment.
