This is a snap shot of my most recent professional experience, however in my overall experience has been unique, and the uniqueness of this experience lends to how I view the world and how I approach problems, solutions and jobs. I have run a before and after school day care program, worked for a child developmental research study and I spent 15 years in musical theatre where I held various roles from spotlight operator, lighting and sound designer, to technical director, set designer and assistant director.
