Masha is a NYC-based lighting designer for live performance. She comes from Russia, by way of California, Boston, California, New Haven, and California. She is coastally indecisive, an Aquarius. She speaks English, Russian, and a smattering of French. Masha is especially interested in collaborating on work that transcends the boundaries of any particular genre, and finds meaning in abstraction. Always looking for kind people doing strange things. In addition to design, Masha’s interests include progress towards pay equity and a more ethical model of making in the American theater. Masha is a proud member of United Scenic Artists, IATSE Local 829.
