    Hello! I'm a junior at a public school in Parma, Ohio. I dabble in lights and know how to turn the sound board on. When people talk tech to me, I maybe understand one word in ten. But I figure as long as I'm trying to learn, no harm. Right? The last show I helped out with was Kiss Me Kate (which just closed Sunday) which I designed lights and ran the lightboard for.

    I enjoy climbing the school's catwalk and using power tools! Being the only female who helps out in the booth, I sometimes feel like a lone voice in the dark.

    Nice to meet everyone!

    AP TESTS!! The two weeks a year other then tech weeks when I am locked in school!!! (the AP Calc BC exam is tomorow and I have been studying like crazy for it, thus my slow response)

    Anyways, Welcome! Hey, This is a great place to learn all things tech, and hopefully in notime you'll be knowing 11 out of every 10 tech words! (ya, I'm counting the words skipped in normal fast tech talk)

    Females in my experience tend to be a great addition to tech crews. I know most of the girls I have worked with have a much better eye for lighting design then I do! I am sure I can learn alot from you and I hope to read alot of your comments! Please dont be afraid to shout out and add a comment or question anywhere on the forum!

    AP tests, don't remind me! I have the Government test next Wed. I'm hoping they don't decide to give out negative numbers.
