Other / During / Was

For many years I travelled with theatre companies, corporate production houses and concert artist management teams that showcased their talent roster all over North America.


If you think this doesn’t apply, you are wrong.


In keeping with production standards that are safe and portable, many seemingly different types of events, use the same equipment, 

but in different configurations.

Car shows to concerts, theatre to store window displays is a matter finding the appropriate equipment, given all the parameters, and installing it to highlight that item, the best way possible.

Through these adventures, I accumulated much knowledge and many skills that currently apply.

Besides touring, I also contracted to television studios as a gaffer for clients that produced promotional videos to game shows.


All of this happened on a contract basis through the late 70’s to the late 90’s.


The entertainment industry is a fickle beast and if you don’t have a plan B, your plan A is already screwed.
