Technical Crew - Residence Hall Program Board

October 2012 - May 2017

As a member of tech crew I assisted with setup and teardown of lecture, music, and commedy events. Additionally, I DJed during move-in week and at various social events. I hosted several open-mic and karaoke events. I became lighting director in fall of 2013 and crew head (Technical Chair) at the end of spring 2014.

I came into the position of Technical Chair while membership of the crew was dwindling. I developed a new training and retention plan. The plan put a focus on making new members feel important by giving them tasks up to par with what the upperclassmen were doing. I also organized several workshops that taught both sound and lighting concepts. The plan was greatly sucessful and the crew has retained 60% more members under my leadership than were retained in previous years. I also wrote a crew handbook documenting everything that the crew does to put on each event with instructions on how to use equipment and troubleshoot various situations.

The focus of my time as Technical Chair was to rebuild a struggling organization. As a result, we were able to do better work.

  • Team Management/Technical Direction
  • Training
  • Light Design and Technology (Chamsys MagicQ)
  • Sound Mixing
  • Show Support Technologies
