You may know Robby as that charming guy that answers our phones, but he’s also a talented lyricist. Here he tells about an exciting collaboration he’s working on with one of our fantastic Artisitter® caregivers and trained actor, Nick:
Guiding the workings of our office by day, designing lighting plans by night, our Director of Operations tells us what satisfies his artistic itch:
“Everyone needs lighting. As a Lighting Designer, I work on projects ranging from theater and dance performances to architecture and events. One of my regular projects is the Consumer Electronics Show, held each January in Las Vegas. I’m part of a team responsible for putting all the lights, sound, video, and staging up the day before, rehearsing the show, running the show without a hitch (we only get one shot at it) and taking it all down again. For these kind of shows my job is about the art of time management.
Besides admin work at Sitters Studio, our Office Manager Jaimie works as a freelance Stage Manager for Off-Off Broadway productions. Her latest venture? Touring Kosova (Albanian spelling), Macedonia, and Albania with a bilingual play about gender and cultural issues in modern Kosova. Here, Jaimie tells us about the experience….
If you’ve met any of our artisitter® caregivers, you already know how dedicated they are to their artforms. But we’ve also got quite a few working artists in our office as well! Jaimie spends any time she’s not with us working as a stage manager, Jason also does lighting design for dance and theater productions, Robby moonlights as a lyricist-librettist, and Kerry is pursuing a career as a sketch-comedy writer. Every Tuesday during the month of February we’ll feature a recent project from each of these artistic staffers. Check in to find out how Jaimie enjoyed her theater company’s tour of Kosova and learn about Robby’s latest children’s musical project with one of our favorite artisitter® caregivers, Nick.
