Just following the "rules" and posting my introduction here!

For the most part, I'll let my random comments that I'm going to make in the future speak for me! :D

Right now, I work professionally at a college, in the field of Student Activities, but teching is, and will always be, one of my loves. Odd to say this I guess, but working on a show is actually a huge stress reliever for me.

As for background, I spent four years doing everything from running the flyrail to running the lightboard, and finally settling on Stage Managing. Currently, I Assistant Direct and Stage Manage for a student run musical theatre company at the college where I work, and I love every minute of it!

Can't wait to explore the rest of the site and get to know everyone.

lol, i dont know about a "rule" might be something to look into though..... :)

Welcome! When it comes down to it, Tech is a stress reliever for me too, although it's not a job that stresses me, it's schoolwork (try 3 AP classes and 2 other accademic classes at the same time)!

Please have fun roaming the forums, and please share your experice with all of us so we can all learn, and in return, we will do the same! Welcome!

You have obviously never heard his LP. (vinyl record for those of you too young.)

He has been doing comedy for years now in kind of making fun of his acting style or past part in Star Trek in a tongue and cheek way. What is that priceline commercials of late? I don't remember any comedy in his last series TJ Hooker but it was a crime drama - sort of at least.

haha sombra2 were watching the same thing... i thought i was the only one up at 2:30 watching comedy central. and i find tech work to relieve stress, except of course for the 10 mins before a minor show or 3 days before a major show when i am completely stressed out, but as soon as the show starts, or especially after it ends its relaxing.
