“I was first drawn to Trinity Rep for the opportunity to work for a Tony-Award winning regional theatre, as well as the chance to work with acclaimed Resident Set Designer Eugene Lee. I have grown to love Providence and New England, and the Trinity Rep Staff and resident Acting Company members have become my family.”
