Where Entertainment Production and Design People Meet!

This school year, around September 2013, I began working as an LD, programmer, and board op for the biggest and longest running night club in San Francisco; City Nights. The way this door was opened was miraculous. Literally the day before I met my clients, the previous LD had said he needed to tend to a burned down house that belonged to his parents. They were in dire need and I just happened across them with a business card. Funny thing is, I wanted this kind of job before coming up to SF. I've learned so much more than I thought was involved in running live shows night after night. I've met many people and I'm happy with where I'm at right now. Being a college student with the job that I wanted and so very much love, I'd be foolish to complain, but I'm not satisfied. I want more and I know it needs time, so I'll wait. That's the new beginnings. I hope to post more frequently about relevant topics in the future.

It's good that you are not satisfied. A good lighting designer is never satisfied with complacency. Moving upward to the next challenge, or getting thrown into the fire immediately is the best way to learn, so keep going. I was once a college student in the bay area doing whatever gigs I could to make money and would have loved to have been a house LD way back then. But if boredom sets in, find a new challenge, something different to light.
