    Howdy my name is Phil W,
    I am a BA theatre (concentration in lighting). I like lighting so far, I'm ok at design but I really like Master Electrician-ing (?). I really love concerts so far, and due to lack of better people I've crew chiefed a few shows here at our school, which has been SO much fun.

    I'm 20 years old and learning as much as possible...It strikes me as amazing that I can have so much fun in this field AND get paid (a little) for it. I really love the behind the scenes world

    Things I barely know :Lighting, Strand boards
    Things I want to know more about: Rigging, Lighting (esp automated), Lighting console tricks (how to make your pda take over)

    Relevant (kind of): I really use this industry as an excuse to have some really awesome toys, I mean Tools, that's it, tools...I love spyderco benchmade kershaw and have many many of those, I also am a flashaholic caught up in the current flow of Cree/Rebel and SSC P42180 LEDS. I like having the best toys (I mean tools) for the job, and I usually have backups so I can equip forgetful people.

    Also I made a sheet to help people cheat their photometrics calculations...

    However Gafftaper cried about it so I'm making him a modified one...;)

    I was raised in Cincinnati, and am currently stuck in barren little Kent Ohio.

    Phil

    And I'll have two slices of dry white toast. Nothing to drink.

    Welcome, Phil. Nice to have another Buckeye on the board. I know people who went to Kent before you were born, so when you graduate maybe I can hook you up.

    I'm still dissecting your spreadsheet--I have a couple of questions, which I'll PM you about.

    You'll find CB can take all of your free time if you let it, so be careful!;)
