Additional Comments:
I am a easy going type of attitude. A cool head. Always gets the job done. Reliable and Dependable. Just a good guy to be around with. I don't claim to know it all. I know quite a bit but always open to learn new jobs or how to do a job another way. All these years and never learn how to program a light board and run a show. Would like some training that area. Also training Pyrotechnics.
