"The strength of the team is each individual member. 
The strength of each member is the team."

 

as a team, we are stronger with our team members, our ASSOCIATES and our peers than WE WOULD BE as individuals.  

we will ALWayS choose to work with the proper people, with the right Skills, focus and ATTITUDE, for each job, rather than A excessive resume or polished promotional materials.

We want to work with you and your people as a team, rather than dictate or dominate YOUR PROJECT TO OUR BENEFIT.   

we will complete each job with excellence.

we will be agreeable, confident, CREATIVE, and COLLABORATIVE.

We are always open to learning, adapting, adjusting and how to improve.

For most of 2014 he served as Head Acrobatic/Stunt Performance Rigger of the touring show MARVEL UNIVERSE LIVE, which included over 100 flying effects and stunts each show.

 


“We found ourselves with a need to fly someone in a theater and no time to figure it out. Brett made it happen. A quick consultation and not only did he create what we needed he immediately made all the contacts to get the gear. Brett was patient in explaining how it all came together, and it worked perfectly. Top notch”
