Heading North

This is going to be a fairly brief post as I’m very excited and want to get it published.
In a few months I will be getting my driving licence, once I have this I will be heading up to Manchester to stay with my grandparents and become an Emergency Medical Technician. I plan to do this for a couple of years to gain experience before considering either continuing on as an EMT or becoming a paramedic.
Becoming a paramedic is the significantly more likely outcome for the reason in the image below.


Note: I WILL be continuing my technical theatre and music career on the side!

Lighting at the County Music Service

Great news, I have been speaking to the head of music at the Oxford County Council and I will be doing lighting for the central music school and the county music service. They have great facilities and many very talented musicians. I am also working on some awesome new projects in school and with other theatre companies!

A long day ahead!

Well about an hour ago from writing this post I returned from a long day at school. Between myself, Alex, Jacob, Nigel and Mr. Pelling we managed to get the majority of the difficult work done setting up the scenery, the main steel decks are in place and the treads are all fully set up. Tomorrow, however is going to be even more hectic, in the morning we are collecting extra lantern cables to run the lighting for the treads as well as finishing the testing of the awesome new microphones that we have for the production this year. Hopefully with the new mics all will go a lot more smoothly from a sound engineering perspective. Tomorrow will also be spent hanging, focusing and programming lights as well as setting up the comms system. It’s going to be a long day but I’m excited!

I’m a lord!

As one of her Christmas presents I decided to purchase my girlfriend and myself a plot of land next to each other in Scotland which now makes me a lord (laird) and her a lady.
