Well a little over 2 years ago when I joined up I never actually introduced myself. So I figured what better way to join the 3000 post club then to stop and introduce myself. Plus I'm sure a few of you would enjoy the opportunity to roast me a little. I started helping the sound guy at my church when I was in about 5th grade. From there it was running sound in middle school, and "stage crew" class in High School. I went to college and found a crusty old T.D. who knew everything and the rest is a long boring story. Today I teach "Intro to Tech theater", I build sets and design lights for the theater department, and I'm "Interim theater manager" which means I'll be supervising the scheduling and technical needs for building rentals. The interim is in there because the money runs out June 30th and then we have to figure out a more permanent way to fund this position... that's how it works in an educational bureaucracy. I also spend a lot of time at home with my two boys, who as you have already seen, are growing up as hard core theater rats. And finally unmasking the enigma that is Gaff, My name's Mark.
