Headshot Andrew Hungerford is fascinated with creating theatrical magic in small, intimate performance spaces, as well as the challenge of generating immediacy for an audience within larger venues. His writing and performance experience round out an approach to lighting design that aims to serve the theatrical experience as a whole. If the lighting isn't helping the story be told, he feels that he isn't doing his job.

Andrew's background is somewhat diverse. He graduated from Michigan State University in 2002 with a B.A. in Theatre and a B.S. in Astrophysics. He received his MFA in Lighting Design from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music in 2005.

A photo is included on this page as a head shot of sorts. It is also to assure you that his portfolio's name, "lighting...of doom," does not mean that Andrew is evil. Look at the photo. That is not an evil man.

In the summer of 2005 Andrew directed his play Between the Water and the Air at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It received a second production at the 2006 Cincinnati Fringe.

Andrew was the 2006 recipient of the USITT Lighting Design Award sponsored by Barbizon. His lighting design for the opera Ariodante, along with the scenic design by Paul Shortt, was included in the 2007 US entry to the Prague Quadrennial.
