Here is what Michael has to say about himself and his new job with VIPA!
What made you want to work with VIPA?
I wanted to find work that challenged me and my understanding of event production and technology. I wanted to work with a company that is active and invested in the community and creating the next generation of well-rounded individuals. VIPA is all of the above, it doesn’t really feel like a job here, more of a time and space to improve myself and my understanding while helping those around me.
What is your favorite thing about your job?
My job is different every day! I love that I have somewhat of a routine but nothing so rigid where I can’t find time to stop and learn something new!
What are 2 things you do as part of your job you think most people wouldn’t realize are part of your responsibilities?
I am responsible for teaching apprentices and making sure they are intellectually ready for the tasks that are asked of them. I am also the technician on many of the VHS theatre activities, I’ll be working on some 350+ shows this season.
