Hello, I'm Griffin Allen - a lighting designer and technician from the great state of Kentucky. I'm currently finishing my last semester at Northern Kentucky University where I am earning my B.F.A. in Design/Technology with a focus in Lighting Design. As of January 2020, I have worked on about 30 shows in just a little over 6 years. I started back in high school where I first found my love of theatre and all things tech - including Lighting Design. Then, to continue pursuing my passion of telling stories and creating art I was accepted into the NKU School of the Arts and have since worked on becoming a professional theatre technician and lighting designer. Other than my educational theatre experience, I also have worked with professional companies when I am not in school. These opportunities have taught me about the "real world" of theatre and prepared me for my life after collegiate theatre. As my graduation approaches, I am looking forward to jumping into the wide world of professional theatre to continue my journey of telling stories through rays of light.
