Lighting Technician

Hailing from the south of Nelson, Shaun got an invaluable introduction to the industry at his local church as the go-to lad for all things technical. Now a member of the Oceania Lighting team, he has retained that ‘all-rounder’ badge and is always ready to help across the departments.

His height makes him popular come focus time, but he’s happiest when behind a Hog console, delving into points of advanced operation.

Shaun:

Growing up with computers, I’ve always loved discovering new programs and figuring things out, which is useful in an industry with so much gear. It all started as a teenager. Without anyone to mix audio at the church, I was chucked in the deep end, meaning a lot of trial and error and learning to read manuals properly.

When I left school I studied at SAE up in Auckland, then was offered an internship at Equippers Church doing design and technical work, including a lot of lighting. A spell working for Corporate AV taught me the value of client relationships and cable tidiness (so much gaffer tape), and then, thinking I’d prefer regular hours, I went to work as a graphic designer. No more late nights! But I’d caught the bug, and a year-and-a-half later I returned to working on live shows, doing casual work for several companies, including Oceania, and it wasn’t long before I moved to full time.

I really enjoy the variety of work on offer, and especially like delivering large-scale events. It’s great to keep learning new skills.

Travel, design and photography are special interests – and motorcycles, my transport of choice all year round.
