He worked in the same capacity on Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel (Salzburg world premiere, Covent Garden, Metropolitan Opera). Among the many other productions he worked on in 2018 alone were In the Heights (Engerman Theater), A Walk on the Moon (American Conservatory Theater), An Octoroon (Chautauqua Theater Company), The Little Mermaid (Kimmel Center), and Mission Hamlet (Public Theater). This summer he will be projection designer for Ivo van Hove’s Don Giovanni production at the Opéra National de Paris. He has been Riccardo Hernandez’s associate scenic designer for numerous productions, including the world premieres of A Coffin in Egypt (Houston Grand Opera) and Charlie Parker’s Yardbird (Opera Philadelphia), as well as plays produced at LaMaMa, the Public Theater, George Street Playhouse, and Westport Playhouse, among other companies.
