Hello Everybody. I am David, I have been using information from this site for the past 6 or so months in regards to everything from how to run cues on an EC 96/192 board to which cordless drill to purchase. I am participating in my 28th show this fiscal year, and am relatively new to the theatrical business. I am 18 and started when I was 16. I am an independent lighting contractor for most of Southern Maryland, but that's mostly for semi-permanent gigs like summer stock programs. I plan to attend Point Park University in the Fall of 09, after I graduate high school, and major in either Lighting Design or Technical Direction. I am the Tech Director, Lights Designer, Scenic Designer, and Lights Crew Head (Master Chief) of my high school's conservatory, and the Technical Advisor for my thespian troupe. I basically do anything you can imagine (except costumes, stage management, and directing) and am somewhat of a free janitor in my school. I am in all theatre classes for a bangin senior year, and sometimes get to get out of school/ skip to help on outside productions. I set up the school's media booth/ morning anouncements booth, and a few friends and I have made a green screen and actively teach how to use it. I really don't like talking about me this much, so there's the basics. I hope to bring some meaning to CB, as it has proved valuable to me over my summerstock experience and general questions when I cant think straight at the moment. And I love the dark side of life!
