Work experience

Feb 2009Present

Entertainment Technician

Cache Creek Casino Resort

As an Entertainment Tech, my duties require me to think on my feet under high stress situations. Whether I am troubleshooting equipment or making important split second decisions during concerts productions, I always maintain a professional attitude and confidence. I perform my tasks wearing many very different hats, such as: Video Director, Camera Operator, Lighting Director, and Audio Engineer. I am required to maintain all video/lighting/audio equipment for the casino properties and perform any repairs when necessary. I am required to be well organized, focused, technical, and rational; All while bringing forth consistency and creativity towards the benefit of an up-most high quality venue. The Show Must Go On! And be the very best it can be... Everytime!
