Private Jones was done at Goodspeed Musicals. It had a 12 person cast and 4 person pit of drums/percussion, fiddle, guitar, and keys. It was mixed on a Yamaha DM2000.
Private Jones is easily my favorite show I have ever worked on, and one of the most challenging shows I have ever mixed. It is a new work that was in workshop for its entire run at Goodspeed. This meant we had rehearsals where often whole scenes and songs would be changed, added, or cut, and those changes would immediately be implemented into that night's performance. Quickly adapting to these changes was a journey at times, but being so deeply involved in the creative process at its core was incredibly fulfilling.

Little Shop of Horrors was done at Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival. It had an 8 person cast and the challenge of mixing a live cast to a tracked band. It was mixed on a Yamaha CL3.
As one of two lead sound engineers at Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, for the show I was responsible for mixing and at times A2ing. With there being two people mixing, it was a very fun challenge and collaboration to reach a consistent mix between the two of us and make sure that we were on the same page. Outside of the show, I was also responsible for leading prep, load in, strike, and maintenance throughout the season. I also helped to create a "sound bible" for the space, of which some work is pictured below.

Pippin was done in Corbett Auditorium at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM). It had roughly a twenty-person cast and a twenty-five-person pit. It was mixed on a Digico SD10 for a d&b Soundscape system. Getting to know both Soundscape and the SD10 was a fascinating experience. There were also many changes made to the script for CCM's performance, and learning how to quickly adapt to changes and notate changes on the fly was a very fun challenge.

The 39 Steps had a four-person cast and was mixed on a Yamaha CL5 at The Hanna Theater for Great Lakes Theatre. I really enjoyed getting to work on and improve my dialogue mixing skills during this show.
