RECENT WORK

Here's a look at some of my favorite audio projects I've worked on over the last few years.

Programming QLab again for BYU's annual Homecoming Spectacular! featuring Hit-making Nashville-based singer-songwriter Ben Rector along with prolific LDS-Christian crossover artist Hilary Weeks.

FLY MORE THAN YOU FALL

September 2019

Winner of 9 BroadwayWorld Salt Lake City Awards, "Fly More Than You Fall" originally premiered at the new Noorda Center for Performing Arts in Utah. Mixing the 20 cast members and 16-input band for the incredible music written by Nat Zegree and Eric Holmes was a genuine privilege. Sound design by Jackie Barrett was a great asset to the production, and it was a pleasure working with her.

HALE CENTRE THEATRE

Mixing audio for theatrical performances and corporate events. In the first year of their new building, Hale Centre Theatre produced 10 shows with 848 performances, and over 500,000 patrons attending. Running both the audio console and QLab, I've worked the productions "Wait Until Dark," and "The Wizard of Oz."

BYU HOMECOMING SPECTACULAR!
