The best event I have worked on to date is the Bundaberg Rum Watermark event held in April 2011. After some of the worst floods in Queensland’s history, Bundaberg Rum decided to rally the nation’s support and help rebuild Queensland fighting spirit. The event consisted of 16 mini music festivals, spread across South East Queensland and one in Victoria. I was the Production Manager for the event and was responsible for sourcing all staging, lighting, audio, power and backline requirements. Most the venues were still in a bad state of repair from damaged cause by the floods and each had their own set of challenges to become operational for the event, and in most cases everything had to be brought in. As challenging as the pre-production was, seeing it all come together was great. I was in a small town called Murphy’s Creek, outside of Toowoomba, to see Daryl Braithwaite and Rose Tattoo rock the crowd and raise the spirits of the locals. It was an amazing feeling to know that all events had been executed perfectly.

People would be surprised to learn that I spent 3 years working with Cirque du Soleil in Macau. I was the Lead Projectionist and Programmer for the video system for the show and managed the special effects department, working with liquid nitrogen and pyrotechnics! The best thing about working in live events is seeing people get enjoyment from my work. Whether it is dancing the night away or seeing their photos up on the big screen, the smiles on the faces of the guests is what I do the job for.
