I have worked in showbiz just about my whole working life, and have gathered an extensive experience in the lighting/touring industry. I have toured the world and worked with everything from corporate kickoffs, club size rock tours, exhibition stands, and general troubleshooting, to complex theatre productions & live gigs with 36000+ in the audience. During the years I have gathered a wide knowledge about building and maintaining complex lighting systems and programming various lighting control systems. In more recent years lighting/set design and production has become the main part of my assignments as well as showvideo and creating videocontent to be used at stage performances.
