A huge thank you to Les Claypool, Mutaytor and Cirque Berzerk for having me step up for an evening at the Wiltern, and another thank you to PRG for access to the ESP Vision studio and making it happen.

This show was a real treat to design- the pictures don’t do this show justice at all.
The premise of this show was to have 9 artists have their artwork or sculptures be the source of inspiration for 9 short one act plays. We instituted a rhythm where each art piece would be showcased as a cue its own, allowing people to take in a consider the piece before fading into the scene written about it.
I found the relationship unfolding onstage to be enjoyable on many many levels and I do hope that Padua returns to this multi-playwright/ multi- artist concept soon.
After 8 years and over 500 productions with Full Flood Inc. as an Assistant Lighting Designer to Bob Dickinson, Bob Barnhart, and the quintessential Southern Gentleman who is Ted Wells, I have decided to venture out on my own. Highlights with Full Flood include the tremendous honor of preparing the lighting plots and orders for such shows as the 2002 Salt Lake City and 2004 Athens Olympic Opening Ceremonies, Superbowl Halftime shows with Aerosmith, U2, The Rolling Stones, Prince and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and eight straight years of Oscars, Grammys, Emmys and Tony Award shows. I am immensely grateful for the time spent with such fine designers, crews, and production staff and wish Mr. David Thibodeau the very best in his new role.

For 3 years I was employed as a Project Manager/ Automated Crew Lead for the Los Angeles branch of Vari*Lite, in the halcyon pre-PRG days of 1997-2000. After gaining Series 200 and 300 training in Dallas, and I was able to be apart of the Artisan to Virtuoso & DMX transition and feel very fortunate to have been apart of such a critical phase of automated lighting history. I was also very proud to be apart of the VLPS LA team that specialized in laying in large one off televised productions for designers such as Simon Miles, Alan Branton, Bob Barnhart and Bob Dickinson. Highlight productions with Vari*Lite and VLPS include Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Century event in NYC, the grand opening of the Experience Music Project in Seattle, and crew leading the annual the Vanity Fair Oscar Party @ Mortons.
