He has served as a representative as well as the Vice President for the Student Advisory Board, performed in many works including the restaging of Jose Limon’s Missa Brevis, and is currently on the Dance Production Crew for his third year. Davey made his ASU lighting design premier in January 2008 for the New Danceworks III concert. Since then, Davey’s work has been seen in numerous works here at ASU including Master’s Thesis concerts, Senior Capstones, and Undergraduate Concerts. Davey is very happy to say that he is the first Undergraduate Student to light not only one Master’s Thesis concert but three. He honored to be the first to design the full light plot, the lights cues and stage manage for a Master’s Thesis concert. Davey works directly under his production mentors Mark C. Ammerman and Carolyn Koch, who allow him to grow and succeed. Without the help of these two people Davey would not have had the success he has today.
