I've been working in professional theater for oh crap... 25years.... Got my degree in theater from Purdue University, my lead professor was Lee Watson. I was an engineering student until I took my first lighting class from him. Great teacher... Currently I work in higher education as a technical director. Now I do everything from design lights and sets, to contracts, to master carpenter stuff. Hard to believe I am still in this job, but it's been good to me. Spare time, fall, spring and summer you will find me on the water somewhere. Either sailing or canoing. If not there, I am on bike with my camera in hand.
