Hello from NorCal!

Hi folks.. My name is Wade.. I'm here in Modesto CA.
I joined DVI to learn about the DV format and hopefully start a business around video. I am (was) a professional lighting and pyro tech in the country music world and have had several instances of my work on National TV. I got out of lighting to persue other things as I had reached the top of my lighting career as far as I wanted to take it.

I'm a huge geek, I do computers (and one in my truck, see www.StineEngineering.com), I fly ultralights (see www.usppa.org) and do all sorts of other things, but those are the two big ones.

ANyway.. I'll be asking for advice and looking in the classifieds for gently used gear.

Nice to be involved!

Hi Wade,

Modesto.....I always get turned around in that darn town--can't ever get my bearings. :)

Sounds like you've had an interesting time of it to this point; best wishes to you in your new career, and Welcome!

Hello from Elk Grove, Wade.

I had some experience with pryotechnics when I was in law school. A buddy of mine set up a show in Livermore on the 4th, and I went along as "muscle". Got a terrible sun burn...

Hi from Riverbank, Wade! I recently moved to this area from Sacramento. I too joined this forum to learn as much as I can and eventually get into this crazy business. I am planning to attend MJC in the fall, taking some film and graphic arts classes. Best of luck to you!
