Here is a timeline of my career. I have been a freelancer since day one.
I am available as a powerpoint programmer.
1975-1979 film production student
1979-1980 very brief film production career
1980 wandered into an A/V shop, where I was asked, "Do you know how to mount slides?"
1980-1984 worked in A/V houses around NYC: slide mounter, darkroom, forox, slide coordinator
1981 first staging job: three weeks as a crew of one on a two-projector, 15 city Dow-Chemical show.
slideshow programmer, sometimes
working as TD simultaneously.
1996-2001 Sony CRV programmer (Sony shows)
programmer, or whatever is next
I have worked on many, many shows, around the country and overseas: Everything from sales meetings, to investor conferences, to pharma meetings, to the DC Comics booth at Comic-Con, to annual “SEC issues” meetings. I am happy to report that I have worked with the majority of my clients for over 10 years, some for almost 30.
I am comfortable working as a small part of a large crew, or being sent "all by myself" to work with a dozen high-end doctors at a pharma "advisory board". In addition to driving the graphics at meetings I often find myself in pre-show rehearsal/powerpoint editing sessions surrounded by clients and presenters.
