His work included 160 British and American regional theatre and opera designs, as well as several Broadway productions, a section of the film Renaissance Man, and several retail design products in San Diego. Among his credits was The Who's Tommy, directed by Des McAnuff, for which he won a Tony Award. Other highlights of his career include 24 productions for the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC), lighting design for The Blue Angel, The Secret Garden and A Midsummer Night's Dream. He also worked with the Royal National Theatre in England, the Los Angeles Opera, the La Jolla Playhouse, and the Opera Theatre of Lucca in Italy.
