Amber’s innovative, detailed, dramatic and musical designs bring beauty and life to any production!
A graduate of Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA, Amber received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in Theatrical Lighting Design in May of 2012.
For several years Amber worked in the Seattle area freelancing with companies such as The Village Theater, STG (Seattle Theater Group) and ArtsWest Playhouse. She even received a "Broadway World" nomination for her work on the North-West premiere of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson with Artswest. Shortly there after, Amber took advantage of the opportunity to work as the Head Lighting Designer/Operator for Celebrity Cruise Lines. While working with Celebrity, Amber was required to present and design a different full length and spectacular show every evening. As head of her department, Amber was also in charge of all theatrical and architectural lighting on board, as well as the operation and upkeep of three professional “Vegas Style” productions. Amber also had the opportunity to perform the duties of the Production and Stage Manager while working with Celebrity Cruise Lines. Responsible for all daily operations as well as the oversight of more then 60 entertainment professionals and their daily activities, Amber became the main liaison for the Miami Head Office and was responsible for maintaining the highest quality entertainment standards at sea.
After more than three years, and several thousand nautical miles, Amber made the decision to return to life on land. In December 2015, Amber moved to Montréal, where she currently resides and works full time as a freelance Lighting Designer and Production Manager. Not only does Amber have the ability to work freely throughout Canada, but she maintains her American citizenship and her ability to work, hassle free, south of the border.
Currently, Amber is preparing to join The Stratford Shakespeare Festival for its 2019 season as an Assistant Lighting Designer in The Festival Theatre.
