Hi, late introduction as I posted last October but have been busy so have just been reading. My user name came from Don Allen Electronics, registered in Perth, Western Australia. I work full time as a Senior Technician at the University of Western Australia and run my business after hours and sometimes flexitime or take leave for large jobs. For lighting, I do half professional shows, I have a ballet season starting next week, and do free community theatre lighting, usually just a few shows a year. I was lighting director for the Scout and Guide Gang Show for five years, then took a break. I also do a lot of live music shows at The Fly By Night Musicians Club in Freemantle. I did the lighting for Steve Poltz on Saturday night, one of your singers. I am a member of ALIA (the Australasian Lighting Industry Association) and I am self taught. Started with Rank Strand in the early seventies and learnt on the job. I don't like to see old gear thrown out if it is economically repairable for community groups, but have learnt not to do it on the cheap for professional shows. I learn a lot from on line forums and hope I can occasionally help in return.
