I balance my time between freelancing and running SP Sound and Production with fellow 2008 alumn Katie Davidson.
Our company is small, but we support a wide variety of events and shows. As such, we not only have a small collection of live sound equipment, but we have also gotten into theatrical lighting and live video (cameras and switching equipment). We support corporate events, local music festivals, and school drama and musical competitions, to name a few examples.
As a freelance engineer, I do a lot of work in the corporate A/V world. This has given me the opportunity to travel all around New England, and in the past few years, the country. Through this work, I have learned most of what I know about lighting and video. During the summer, corporate work typically slows down tremendously, so I spend a lot of time supporting music tours at fairs and festivals around New England.
After graduating, I completed an internship at a post-production studio in Burbank, CA. There I learned that this wasn’t really the direction I wanted to go in. I am now living in MA and working as an AV tech. I enjoy the more active, hands-on type work involved in installs, and am starting to get into some programming as well.
I have worked in lots of schools including Harvard and MIT, as well as several office buildings and a few hospitals. The biggest project I’ve done so far was an install at a newly constructed office building for Keurig in Burlington, MA. The building has 6 floors with roughly 75 conference rooms, 10 video conference rooms, a cafeteria that doubled as an auditorium and even a gym that had TVs, sound systems, a projector and cable hookups for exercise equipment. This project took about 3 months to complete.
