Ryan Nicolai


Since finishing my B.F.A. in Scenic Art from Southern Oregon University, I have been fortunate enough to work in a variety of capacities at local theatres here in the Portland area. I have thorough training in Scenic Art, Design, Carpentry and Technical Drafting. I believe that working together is essential to creating the best product and strong leadership is essential to creating the best working environment.
