Control and Automation Technician

I worked for Stage Electrics between 1999 and 2002 and ran their moving lights department from summer 2000 until I left. I was responsible for one of the largest stocks of moving lights in Europe. We sent out many shows in which not a single light failed including Classical Brits 2000 which had over 200 Macs.
