Robert Reagan,

Assistant Director/Editor/Sound Designer

Robby has been part of the KAST team for 8 years. He is the assistant director and most recently taken on the role of editor extraordinaire of our virtual productions. His emphasis is in sound and lighting but he wears many hats.


We couldn't do what we do without his hard work and dedication. He is obsessed with sloths and can't stand salt & vinegar chips.
