Technician/Rigger: 2009-2013

The Macy's store located in downtown Philadelphia, PA is in the historic Center City Wanamaker building.  This store also houses the Wanamaker Organ, the world's largest operating musical organ.  In addition to housing this magnificent instrument, the Macy's Parade Studio also presents one of its largest holiday shows there every November and December.  I worked to help load-in and out the massive light show and Christmas tree every year I lived in Philadelphia.  It is quite impressive to be a part of and if you are ever in Philly at that time of year I recommend stopping in.

Pro Vision Productions

Carpenter: 2010-2011

Pro Vision Productions, in Clifton, PA, is a corporate event company that builds custom staging, mainly for corporate meetings, parties, and events.  In addition to building standard flats, we also constructed intricate and challenging sets, whatever the client wanted.  This company holds everything to such a high standard of quality in the build and appearance, that one is forced to adapt their building styles and standards accordingly.

As the carpenter in charge of furniture making, I was tasked with building custom furniture for clients.  Below are some pictures of those builds:
