The Technical Director is the key player who brings together every part of a live event. They lead the entire production team running sound, lights, cameras, visuals and all other technical details. The TD oversees everything that happens on stage and in the room such as managing transitions, coordinating production schedules and communicating with speakers and musicians.
I’M A TECHNICAL DIRECTOR
As a Technical Director I help you plan and execute all technical details for your event. During the event I’m leading the production team, managing every part of the live experience. After the event, I work with post-production teams to capture and share your event.
Production teams are made up of many members and teams like lighting, audio and video. The Technical Director’s job is to bring all of them together to make your event a success. Having a background in technical production, I have years of experience working with each part of a production team.
Creative teams are a crucial part of an event; creating music, videos and designs for stage. As a creative professional myself, I’m very familiar with the creative process. Working with creative teams allows me to oversee how the production team implements their work, bringing it into the live experience.
Here are some past events & tours I’ve worked.
