I have had the great privilege of serving as the General Manager for the Roanoke Island Historical Association and The Lost Colony for the last 15 months. I am deeply proud of the accomplishments this organization has achieved and the successes we’ve been able to celebrate during my tenure. I humbly recognize that I stand on the shoulders of so many talented leaders and those who have served the organization for the last 84 years. I have made a very difficult decision to accept a new General Manager position for a company that is considerably closer in proximity to Charlotte NC. I have a home and partner of 22 years there and this move will allow us the opportunity to spend more time together and less time on the road between Charlotte and the Outer Banks. I have so enjoyed my journey these last 15 months with getting to know the extraordinary board of directors, administrative and artistic staff and the community partners who have dedicated their time and talents to RIHA and The Lost Colony. I am profoundly grateful to each and every one of you for your unconditional guidance and support and I especially appreciate your passion and commitment to continue to raise our own bar to deliver a first-class product to our guests each season. My heartfelt thanks to all of you who continue to support and preserve this historical production and I look forward to hearing about all of the great things yet to come in the seasons ahead. I will continue to provide the necessary support to the staff and to the organization throughout the transition.
With much gratitude and humility,
