JP came to the business from the Rock ‘n Roll side of life. From regional one-nighters to Bus & Truck touring, he has experienced working for bands on their way up, at their height, and on their way to oblivion. Rock, country, jazz, classical, alternative, Rap, you name it, it was in the cards. The first non-equity tour of Crazy For You ’95 was his initiation to Broadway Theater Bus & Truck touring. Since then he has become a Sound Designer, Board Operator, Crew Chief, and Production Supervisor. Sound Design: Cirque Ingenieux (NETworks ’97-’99), Annie (NETworks ’99-’01), Notre Dame de Paris (Paris Hotel Theater-Las Vegas 2000) and Jekyl & Hyde (NETworks 2000). JP was the resident sound designer for The North Carolina Theater in Raleigh for 11 years, and Casa Manana Theater in Fort Worth, TX for 5 years. He finished off his touring career as head audio with the Tony Award®-winning show FELA! that ended back on Broadway in the summer of 2012. Hobbies include photography, model railroading,
sailing, and a love for the unexpected. JP & Marciel welcomed Nixon Ann Parke into their family 4/11/15 and she has become the inspiration of all their work.
