Freelance and Special Projects

I freelance for several different types of events. From tech managing at athletic events to directing and producing live shows, I have many different skills that I can use in different environments. Listed are just a hand-full of my experiences.

I work operations and I am a tech manager for the University of Florida during spring sports such as softball, baseball and lacrosse. I serve as the on-site engineer, as well as set up and strike all equipment.
