My focus is on media server and video control, integration, and programming. However, I am also an automated light programmer and trained technician. As a programmer, I maintain a diverse portfolio and familiarity with today’s cutting-edge equipment and technology - from making last minute edits and content adjustments, tweaking server programming for a corporate client, dealing with the extreme intricacies of tying lighting into multiple forms of show control for themed entertainment, creating unique looks and developing a great busking page for touring, to handling timeline-based video control.
Drawing on experience from nearly every segment of our industry, I have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of nearly all of the industry’s leading equipment. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each piece of equipment and how they translate from one to another ensures speed and efficiency in achieving design goals, in addition to affording me the ability to coordinate with designers who speak different console languages.
I also tap on other resources such as Max/MSP/Jitter and AppleScripting for projects that require advanced control and integration with MIDI controllers, automation control protocols, live human input, and more.
I firmly believe that the best programmers have technical ability, a good sense of design, and the ability to maintain a close relationship with designers.
I also hold and maintain an ACT card which allows me to work on Broadway and productions requiring union personnel, as well as have workers compensation coverage and general liability insurance to meet the needs of any worldwide production.
The worlds of lighting, video, and scenic are coming together faster than many realize, and I look forward to maintaining my role as somebody who can bring these disciplines together.
