I was a member of San Francisco Opera’s Merola Opera Program, a world-renowned opera training and performance program for promising artists and stage directors. At one point, we erected an engineering marvel for Stern Grove’s open air stage – a dramatic rotating set that enabled three separate scenes. The performance was Falstaff, a comic opera in three acts by Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi. We learned how to create the illusion of perfection and suspension of disbelief.

We left it all on the stage. Overcoming time constraints, working in the dark, and plenty of theatrics.

Every commercial building and construction experience informs our mastery of the craft. Which we offer to you.
