I am Sound.
I am the IA.®

When I step onto a set with my brothers and sisters from the IA, I know I'm in the most capable hands, as well as amongst good company.

I am Makeup.
I am the IA.®

Transforming people through prosthetics, hair work and makeup allows creativity to manifest into reality. Being able to bring that to the screen and share it with the world is an honor! Local 706 is the support system for artists out there loving our craft and working hard.

It's great to be one of the team leaders for the Fashion Week venue here at Lincoln Center. Local One has provided manpower for the last three years in the tents and other venues around the city for this event.

Set Lighting Technician

I am Lighting.
I am the IA.®

Through Local 728, I've had great opportunities to advance my knowledge through the training programs, from building LEDS to learning underwater lighting. You can never be overqualified in Local 728.

I am Tradeshow.
I am the IA.®

Working on the Tradeshow floor is never boring. Some booths are very basic, while others bring in state-of-the-art technology. I work one-on-one with exhibitors and clients, giving me the opportunity to hone my skills. Clients appreciate our attention to detail.
