TECHNICAL WORK

42nd Street

​- ​Master Electrician

This show required the construction of intricate signage as well as a lit show portal. All of the sign borders and the show portal were wired to have a 3 circuit chase. In total there were over 2000 individual lights that required circuiting. The show also required two small foot lights to be put on roving stands for a shadow ballet. We used two old fresnel bodies and installed 12v MR16 lamps and switches show that actors could turn the instruments on and off as needed.

Catch Me If You Can

​- ​Master Electrician

This brand new scenic design required the construction of 4 large sliding panels. We installed RBG Led tape in each panel and rigged the cable so that the panels could travel across the entire width of the stage. We also built signage using EL wire and surgical tubing, and we built office lights using flex neon.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

​- ​Master Electrician

This was a 20 year old set that had gone out on countless rentals. When the set was handed over to my team the condtion of the wireing was very poor and unorganized. With over 1700 sockets and a 4 circuit chase built in, it was a huge project to clean up and make repairs. We organized and labled the wireing to ensure the quick load in for the next rental.

Westside Story

​- ​Master Electrician

This was a brand new set and it was the first time I was able to work with and program a wireless dimmer. We used the 2-channel wireless dimmer in the dress shop scenic unit to ensure that it could be freely moved on and off stage. We also worked closely with the properties department on the construction and lighting of a juke box that was fully fabricated for this production.

Yerma

​- ​Master Electrician



This classic Lorca play was challenging due to the enormous raked stage which prevented us from using any form of genie lift. Added dances called for booms as well as steep top spots.

This was the first time I worked in film. We had specialized prerecorded sequences that gave the audience information about what happened just before the start of the play. We also utilized a special effect fog sequence to create a intricate ghost sequence.
