I am a LD that programs. I am also a grip. I am young and just getting into the industry... i Have been an doing lighting for 4 years now and I believe I can bring  young perspective on my struggles with getting into the industry as long as still working with my alma mater and the new up and coming techs of this world.

I'm a freelance LD, programmer, draftsman, and vj from San Francisco. My regular gigs are in the City, but I've traveled to Austin, Boca Raton, Phoenix, Dallas, Las Vegas, and LA to LD, program, consult, and wrench.

Having grown up in clubs around SF for the last 11 years and until recently working for a small lighting company for 5 of those years, I've been privvy to all types of gigs (nightclub dj, concert, fashion shows, outdoor hipppie fests, indoor raves, general sessions, tradeshows, cocktail mixers, etc) and the people who make them happen (producers, lighting company owners, wrenches of all skill levels, union, non-union, touring guys, other LD's, club owners, club managers, Vj's, corporate sponsors, guests, dj's, talent managers, creative directors, etc...).

I don't have a set angle on my blog where i only "pen" my thoughts on technical lighting techniques or projection or new technology. Lighting has too many angles, and I put down how whatever is affecting me at the moment makes me feel as a human being.

Hello PLS!!


I'm your man!  I write constantly. I am working on my second novel at the moment, writing for an entertainment review site, I work at a prestigious theater company putting up big rigs, I work in the corporate world. I design, program, and rig constantly.


To be more specific, I am the lighting supervisor for the Dallas Theater Center. We've put up shows like Superman, Cabaret, Give it Up.  Next season we do Giant, which is this huge Texas musical.  We work with designers like Holder, Croiter, and Lap Chi Chu. I am constantly challenged with rigging, programming, and power. We also get to play with new toys like the VLX and VL3500 Wash FX since  Varilite is in Dallas and they don't mind letting us borrow a few things.

On the side, I design/program for smaller independent theaters. I design/program for industrial gigs and praise and worship services.


As a writer, I dive into fiction quite a bit. That is my main drive as a creator.  My website,, allows me to go completely nuts as a critic.  The site is mostly a place of humor and should not to be taken 100% seriously, but our reviews are backed by fact.  Our readers enjoy it and beg us for more.


Here are some links for you to check out.


Let me know if you need a hand.  I'd love to participate.

Hi Justin,

If you are looking for alternative perspectives on the industry, I think I can offer unique insights. Currently, I work freelance as a programmer/operator/designer in the film industry in Vancouver BC. You can see a couple of my blog posts at .

Hello, my name is Elisa, and I am a lighting designer and operator specializing in the techno/electronica field of music. Besides working in the industry, I support the music as well by being a patron at as many festivals and concerts as possible. I travel from coast to coast to go to such large events as Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra, Electric Zoo, Voodoo, Beyond Wonderland, and DanceGiving. I plan on adding on Coachella,  Bonnaroo, and Burning Man next year in addition to Sensation White in Amsterdam. Your readers would get a fixture count, boards used, video programs used, and insights to some of the larger rigs used in this alternative world of lights and video. I work at Walt Disney World full time, and House of Blues and Beacham Theatre part time. I program/operate MA,HOG, Avo Pearl 2000, and most Insight, Expression consoles. My blogs would focus on large outdoor rigs, production companies that bring REAL production value to their events, and insights of working a 9-5 tech position while keeping it fresh. My writing style is conversational and visual and will listen to all feedback in terms of what the reader wants to see from my world.

Hi Tony C here. I Used to do blogs on the Plsn website and absolutely loved doing it. My column was called "the notebook." My being a youngster in our crazy business I've had a lot of things to share about what I was currently learning about, accomplishments I've made, new gear I am trying out, the occasional funny road story. My published blog links are on my homepage here and I hope you enjoy them. I will dig up some more and post. Hope you enjoy enough to let me share new envevours with our industry. Thanks!

Although I have written for various industry rags, I am saddened to see that I don't really fit into any of the above categories. Of course, as a former lighting designer and programmer, I COULD write about what I USED to do, but since I have gone to the dark side (video and projection), I know that my kind is not accepted in these here parts. However, if you do ever wonder what life would be like on the other side of the fence (yes, the grass IS greener over here in video land!), and would like a perspective of another crew category not represented above, then feel free to look me up! Oh, and we do also provide some lighting, audio, and labor services to our clients, so I do get to see the rest of the dark underbelly that is our industry.


BTW, I would love to read a blog by Warren Kong (see below). I have worked with him many times over the years, and his new digs in Asia would make for an interesting read. Cheers!

I don't currently have a blog, so WHAT BETTER WAY TO START!? I have a very conversational writing style and think that insight into the life and times of an aspiring designer would be insightful and hopefully entertaining for those who have already been through this rite of passage and those who are currently 'in the fire' with me. Topics would include some things I think about like...How to make a retail job work for your design career", New job resources Ive ran across in my search, To techie or not to techie...that is the question, ...and what ever else Im overcoming that week!

Would you be interested in the writings of a young lighting designer during the first year out of Graduate school who recently moved to NYC and is trying to make it in the biz? The trials and tribulations of an aspiring freelance designer?
