He collaborated on several original productions with librettist Lynn Kremer and composer Shirish Korde - A Separate Prison, Bhima's Journey, Conquistadors, Chitra, Rasa and Phoolan Devi: the Bandit Queen - and has designed for summer stock companies in Maine and New Hampshire and has worked on productions for Foothills Theatre Company, Worcester Forum Theatre, Worcester Children's Theatre Summer Youth Theatre and the New England Theatre Company.
