B.A. - St. Lawrence University
Current Professional/Research Interest:
I’m currently working on upgrading all of our lighting equipment in our facilities, including electrics, rigging, control networks, and lighting instruments.
June 2015 - I attended ETC CUE Conference 2015 for lighting education, console training and certification, networking and special events.
August 2014 - My predecessor, John Larrance, and I hosted an LED Workshop to show local schools the different kinds of LED lighting instruments out on the market, and the advantages of using LED technology in their venues
July 2014 - Nemetschek Vectorworks Workshop at Boston College
July 2013 - I participated in an ETC Ion lighting console workshop at New York Live Arts Performance Center in New York City. We covered Level 1: Essentials, Level 2: Enhanced Skills, Effects, Magic Sheets, and Control Networks and Eos Family systems.
June 2011 - I produced several instructional videos on how to circuit, patch, and operate ETC Selador and Chroma Q LED lights on ETC Eos Family consoles.
I enjoy attending live music events, helping out with local productions, kayaking, sailing, and ice-skating on the Rideau Canal in Ottawa. I recently went skydiving with a few of my former students and decided to pursue a USPA A license for skydiving. I completed my AFF training and have 13 more solo jumps to go! Also, although it’s a rare occasion, I enjoy going out for wings with my friends and colleagues.
