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

Welcome to the booth Phil. Can I get that new spreadsheet in all four HPL lamps: 575x, 575c, 750x, and 750c... also I would like four whole chickens and a coke. :cool:

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

Oh and

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!;)
