Hi! My name is Akash Bartlett. I have a BFA in Lighting Design and Technology from the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati, as well as a Minor in IT, Computer Networking Focus, from the School of IT.
My current work is primarily corporate, theatrical, and festival, with experience in TV and Film as well. At school and on the jobsite, I do well as a Master Electrician, Crew Lead, Programmer, or Designer - and I love to work with show control and production networking. I currently work for 4Wall Entertainment, LA, as a Production Technician and Crew Lead. I am also currently working in project management with ITA Audio VIsual in Cincinnati. At CCM, I have performed many roles on our large productions, from Programmer to Master Electrician.
I have previously worked for Q Audio Visual, an A/V company based out of Cleveland, and Vincent Lighting Systems, based out of Cleveland and Cincinnati. These companies gave me a lot of shop and onsite production time. Prior, as a student, I was the primary lighting technician for the Cleveland Heights-University Heights school district, and worked in the High School, Middle, and Elementary Schools - including assisting in a large renovation of all our theaters in 2017.
I got my start onstage, and have a very musical background. To this day, I still play multiple instruments and am skilled at reading a musical score. This is a huge advantage when designing for musical acts and performances.
In my spare time, I enjoy building homelab computer systems and networks. I love the outdoors and long road trips, and have traveled across almost the entire United States and internationally as well.
