Career

California State University San Marcos (CSUSM)

Media Production Specialist

Worked with Faculty, Staff, and Students to add the latest in Media, computers, cameras, equipment, audio gear, lights and conferencing technology tor the Mass Media and Performing Art corriculum at the U. I worked in the IT dept. and assisted in the running and upkeep and purchase recommendations for the universities needs. I worked in a team where we all helped each other and if I was running FOH for a concert I had support from the team for larger projects, or hired an outside company to assist. All the big ticket events went off without a noticable hitch. It would be wrong to say that nothing stopped working or was a challenge, but I made it work during a graduation event at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. If I sound interesting please call. I am a very quick learner who is able to understand complex theorey for great results.

Event Media Specialist

Work for Nestle and other large companies to put on seminars, trainings and other events. Have been hired as a cameraman to shoot the event which usually has a national act performing. We did Cirque de Soleil and Nation Music acts. I also have handled the breakout rooms and provided exceptional customer service and patiently troubleshoot the technical problems and helped teach how to do this for presenters and sales people. Always meet or exceed their expectations.
I left due to conflicts with my schooling to finally earn my BA Degree. I had a teacher that gave me a choice, quit his program or say no to gigs that required a Thursday evening, well you may guess how saying no several times went over...Needless to say I chose to give up the money and the opportunity to further my education and achieve a lifelong goal, to graduate from a reputable college. I figured I have already ran FOH for years, and if I was ever to earn my degree it was then. I forged my way to be the first to graduate from a brand new program - Mass Media/Communications!
