WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PROJECT FROM THE PAST AND WHY

1) Charlton Heston Anti-Terrorism Campaign – many years ago while functioning as an A2, I spent a day with “Moses” at his estate on Coldwater Canyon.  Down to earth and an excellent host – even though he got a little perturbed when I rolled a camera case across his clay tennis court!  The man made me a fantastic grilled ham and cheese in his kitchen while telling me about his adventures and experiences.  One of those days you don’t forget.

2) U2 Zoo TV Tour – Built and assembled a huge flypack with a very aggressive project schedule, and shipped to Australia for a live Thanksgiving day performance.  “one down..one to go…another town, one more show…”

FAVORITE SHOW VENUE

An old missile silo in AZ.  Cool location with a lot of very vintage tech!

WHY COWORKERS ARE GREAT

Never ending experience and resources!  A fantastic team of people and colleagues.  My co-workers all conform to  – “do or do not, there is no try”

WORLDSTAGE IN ONE WORD

Superbness!

ACTIVITIES

Tinkering in the garage, playing my six and twelve string, writing screenplays, camping & fishing, and spending time with my children.

WHY DO YOU ENJOY WORKING FOR WS

The revealing of the company’s character and the dedication of my co-workers. What a great band of players!  I would go into any battle with my colleagues.

BEST THING ABOUT YOUR CITY

Since I grew up in Nashville, but now live in Denver – I truly appreciate the low humidity of the Colorado summers! I have lived in many major U.S. cities and I am fortunate to have friends and colleagues in each of these cities, so while I love Denver and Colorado, there are pieces of me in Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, D.C., New York, Seattle, and Tennessee.
