3 and a half years ago I met a local freelancer working a festival in my town. After getting to know him and connecting with him on Facebook he got me my first stagehand gig with a local production company. To say the rest is history is a bit of a lie.
After that first show I started to network and over the course of that first year, I started to pick up more and more work. The summer of 2016 was the first time in my career where I was completely freelance. That was a great summer.
Even now I work part-time as an audio engineer and freelance quite often around the Des Moines area.
