During his tenure with thedramaloft/BEAM he received accolades for his group exhibition/experimental performance piece by and with artists directly impacted by 9-11, 'Ground Zero/Zona Cero' and directed 'Jay Alan Zimmerman’s ‘Incredibly Deaf Musical' (which was named a “Pick of the Fringe” by The Washington Post).
