Hello,

I’m a former New York set lighting technician, grip, set dresser and camera p.a. In new york I’ve worked on almost all of the major television shows shooting there and some really big films but I’m tired of the New York life style and rental/ real estate prices so I am hoping to establish roots in New Orleans.

I have pay stubs as a proof of my experience and I am lift and OSHA certified and experienced in operating the ion dimmer boards system.

I appreciate your time and consideration and hope you’ll find my technical background in various departments -electric, grip, set dressing and camera a potential asset to your production.
