I am searching for an experience -- 15yrs in National AV Production Business has trained me very well to operate flawless regularly in high pressure environments. I am seeking an adventure whereby I may continue to grow my skills, prove my worth, and ideally land somewhere on a Tour Circuit as I spend every once of my free time catching shows and meeting like minded peeps in the entertainment industry. Music makes me smile!
