|It all started in a small one room shack in the middle of the village. Well, maybe not. The small shack was an apartment in New York and the village was Greenwich Village. Born to an artist and a writer, I grew up surrounded by the arts. My first school was the progressive City & Country School on 12th Street. From there, I went up to the Elizabeth Seeger High School. Really, I went up... The Seeger School rented a floor from City & Country.|
After Seeger, I went to Bennington College to major in Photography. It was there that I discovered that I would prefer to work in a large dark room with a lot of people rather then by myself in the photo darkroom. I found Lighting Design.
Here is a copy of what I place in programs.
