Born in Auckland in 1995 , I moved down to Mount Maunganui when i was 2 and have been here ever since. As i grew up i was always fascinated with Lighting in all Productions i saw, whether it be at schools, concerts or other shows.
It wasn’t till high school where I had my first opportunity to get involved with production myself, starting as a Stage hand in year 9 (3rd form) then starting to operate Audio for some shows and Lighting for other shows at school in year 10 (4th Form). This evolved into being the Head Student Technician and helping organise and run all types of school shows from Shakespeare to Talent Quests to setting up a small PA for out side school events.
It wasn’t till the year after I finished school, 2014, that i got a job as a casual employee at a local Audio Visual company (Bay Audio Visual). In this roll I help load in Lighting and sometimes sound equipment for multiple events like Ted X, Aims Games, New Years at Mount Maunganui Beach to name a few.
After about 6 months I started to pack in and operate audio and AV for smaller corporate events held across multiple venues and In 2015 I was offered a full time job for the company, working my way up in operating Lighting for Larger corporate events that the company did, Like mass gala dinners and award nights.
Near the end of 2015 I was given the opportunity to prove myself to my Manager as he gave me the task to design and operate Lighting for the 2015 NZCT Aims Games opening ceremony. Ever since I have been designing and operating Lighting for all events the company does, such as Aims Games opening ceremonies, New Years down the Mount main stage, Bay Dreams 2016 Main Stage, A Savage Night Out and the 2015 Business Awards Dinner to name a few.
I wish to gain even more experience and knowledge in my field as a Lighting Technician, Designer and operator and one day Tour as one.
