I'm Gerard Williams, Technical Director for Gallaudet University's Theatre Arts Department. I'm also a full time grad student getting my ASL interpreting MA here at Gallaudet. I graduated with a BA in Theatre from George Washington University in 2005, where i was a Presidential Arts Scholar for acting. Of course, upon graduating, I immediately began working backstage. I moved to Portland, OR where I worked as the production stage manager and occasional tour director/ all around guy for Imago Theatre. My Shop Foreman Jacob Fisher (jfisher2008) got me onto control booth as a good resource to contact other professionals in the field to solve our, shall we say, unique set of problems. We're severely understaffed and underfunded (as usual) so getting creative is important. Always happy to hear from other pros.
