From 2015 until the Covid crises of 2020 I was the Director of Lighting at IMS Technology Services. My job was to create the overall lighting design to support the concepts offered to our clients by our production and creative team. Once designed, I engineered all lighting and rigging specifications aligned with local venue requirements.
Corporate theater is just like regular theater, except when it’s not. Things often change at the very last minute and it takes a lot of preplanning to be prepared to scrap it all and start over in an instant.
I’ve had some great crews and local LD/Programmers who have often made my work look so good.
