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 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.
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.
July 2014 - Nemetschek Vectorworks Workshop at Boston College
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.
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. Twenty-four more jumps to go! Also, although it’s a rare occasion, I enjoy going out for wings with my friends and colleagues.
