Workshop description:

Lighting Theory

This workshop will focus on teaching the theory and concepts of lighting in a live music setting. We will discuss everything from color to placement and focusing.

I started doing lights at the age of 13 working county fairs and radio festivals. At the age of 16 I went into a local nightclub and got a internship. I worked there for 5 years and really mastered my craft. I have toured with the likes of We The Kings, Killswitch Engage, AwolNation, French Montana, and Yellowcard. I also work for a company at home where I design and operate lights for everything from corporate events to giant festivals. It is my honor to share my experience, knowledge, and just stories of this career with anyone interested.
