I was gonna post this over in the "tell us something non-theatre about you" thread but I figured it was better suited over here, kind of. My theatre experience goes back to when I was 10 - I started as an urchin in a production of "Oliver!" Since then I have acted in approximately 40 plays and have tech crewed on about as many more. I'm currently on the Board of Directors for a local community group, and serve as the scene shop foreman. I am always trying to learn more about carpentry and set building tricks. So, I also provide firearm props, both blank-firing and "inert" replicas to the various local groups. I offer help in choreographing fight scenes and keeping everyone safe. In time I'd like to make myself available to the local colleges and also their film departments. If I could extract myself from real-time theatre long enough, I'd like to go the proper route and get completely certified for stage combat and like that. Right now I am self-taught. I know plenty, but not everything. So, that makes me the one-eyed man who is king in the land of the blind! For money I am a technical writer in the electronics industry, but I know very little about electronics. You audio guys can probably run circles around me.
