Show Buisness Experience
2015-Present: Assistant Designer/Illustrator for Skytrail Visuals LLC, designing Projection Images for Cirqu du Soleil's "Mystere" show in Las Vegas.
1979 to Present time I have worked in show buisness as a stage hand and a lighting technician in California and Nevada. The last 24 Years I have worked for the show "Mystere" by Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas as a lighting technician, the last 5 years as a special effects technician for that show. I am very experienced in designing and setting up all kinds of shows and events, specializing in everything from intimate art events to larger scale art parties and art shows. My goal is to continue curating art shows and events relating to the art world.
