First Blog Post

Sooo first blog post... Well to begin with I just got back to Penn State from the Summer Stock I was was working at. I was employed by the Totem Pole Playhouse where I was the Sound Designer and Engineer... which is just a fancy way of saying I made everything sound pretty.

I'm taking this class because when I was signing up for classes I needed a gn and this one sounded fairly interesting... Other then that I don't remember why I picked this one in particular it probably fit in my schedule the best.

Now as for why I'm not a science major... Well I sort of am. What most people over look is that my degree is in theatre design and technology. I have to be just as well versed in the art as well as the science. In example next spring I will be the master electrician on our production of Into the Woods. My job for that show will be to take the plot the lighting designer gives me and get electricity to all the lights, data to all the intelligent fixtures, make sure the entire place doesn't burn down, among other things. I need to have at least a working knowledge of electricity and networking. Now you might say that's not really science-y enough but that's just my opinion take it or leave it.

So at this point all I need is a picture sooo

Hi Andrew! I didn't know Theatre Design and Technology was a major at PSU; that sounds really awesome! I interned for Disney Theatrical this summer, and I get the feeling you would appreciate Julie Taymor's design in "The Lion King", check it out!

Hey Andrew!
So your puppy is adorable, I'm a huge fan of dogs and posting dog pictures so I like to appreciate those that do it as well. Your major sounds super tricky, but you really deserve most of the credit when it comes to a show considering the audience wouldn't be able to see the actors if it weren't for your lighting! I've never read "Into the Woods" but I've heard it's a good book, here's a review of it incase your interested!
