I fell in love with Technical Theater sometime near the end of 8th grade, when a friend convinced me to help out as Projection Operator (Go Button Pusher) for the talent show. That show had a whopping 5 cues. I quickly volunteered to spend all my free time in the theater, and on the next show I jumped on the lightboard. Since then I’ve redone my school’s base showfile to work better with our default plot, and I’ve added interactive Magic Sheets and Groups to it. My school’s board is an ETC element, and I’m currently learning the ETC express.
In my free time I mess around with computers and have learned how to program in p5.js, Arduino, CSS, HTML and PHP. I’m currently learning SQL and Python. My first computer was a Compaq Presario running Windows 98, which I still have under my desk. Since then I’ve spent the summer as part of the IT department of my school, and am Assistant IT Director at The Model Railroad Club Incorporated.
When I’m not messing with computers or lights, I make cool things out of broken things, putter around in the garden, play with trains, and make nerdy designs for sale on My Redbubble.
