10 years as a set dec and prop master for my family prop house taught me a lot, but the 3 months working on a off Broadway play taught me even more. Along with set dressing, shopping & sewing, I was also a industrial for almost 10 years for 829 -so I can mix paint, wall paper and find things a lot of people cannot. Resourcefulness is the key to any of these jobs, so if i cannot find it i know people who can.
In more recent years I have taken up a pen and have written 2 scripts currently in early stages of production. Many talents appear later in life, it seems that writing may be one of mine.
