Not really sure where would be the best spot to post something like this, but I figure here would work. I'm an Electrical Engineer (have my BS in Electrical/Computer Engineering; currently working on a Masters Certificate in Computer Engineering which I'll have by December, and that will flow into a MS in Electrical Engineering which I'll have by May 2011, if all goes to plan). Right now I just do theater on the side, helping out with my old high school as a consultant. I've always been really into theater and would have gone into it as a career, but for various reasons the engineering thing won out. (I'm regretting that decision more and more each day) Currently I'm working for a lage company (not going to say who) and I really can't stand it here. I'm not doing anything that I enjoy, and I'm not at all utilizing my engineering skills. This all brings me to my question. I'm always happiest when I'm doing something theater related, and I think it would be a really great thing for me if I could do engineering work for a company in the theater business; whether it be designing circuitry for lighting/sound consoles, designing moving lights, something else all-together (I'm really a lighting guy at heart, but I'm open for new things). I know different equipment manufacturers have NY offices (I'm in the New York/Long Island area), but does anybody know if any of them do development work here? (such as equipment design, circuit design, etc) I doubt I'll leave my current position any time soon unless a really good opportunity pops up, as they're giving me a very good paycheck and covering 100% of grad school (the only real perk of working here), but I've been trying to look into my other options recently, because I'm really getting wound up tight working here and don't think I can take much more (it's not just me, people are dropping like flies from this place). Thanks in advance!
