LD, Programmer, Rigger, prod management.

I up rigged mostly when I was young and still working my way to behind the console.

These days I only climb to show the young bucks how it is done safely and quickly.

I am thinking of taking the ESTA arena rigging cert.

That show really is disgusting. Hope it fails miserably.

up here in canada we have the ETCP rigging certificate.
i have that and also IRATA certified.
all kinds of other fall arrest, safety, etc. gov't certs.
i have done mostly rigging now since 1996.
best job in the world. doing lots of theater flyrail now.
studied with jay glerum and harry donovan (RIP harry).

never was a lighting guy, although as a rigger i have to work with them all the time.

ran sound and (minimal) lights for club bands. produced several albums and spent years studio engineering, but that was in the analog reel to reel days. my ears are shot now, anyway.

after digital took over, i switched to regular roadie, guitar tech. merch. whatever you needed. lots of touring.

but, no doubt, like you, i have done just about every job there is in this biz, from geotech to crew dispatcher to promoter to site coordinator to truss spot. we are all men of many hats.

anyway, thanks for sharing.

Sorry for the delay. I haven't been around much. Often to painful to read about others hurts


But I'm an LD

But I also rig.

Hell I'm a technician whore and will do just about any production gig for cash.
