You work in one of the places I want to visit when I make it to the US! It looks great, and I've always had a weird affinity to Denver for some reason*

*Probably watching Mork and Mindy as a kid...

Hi everyone!

I'm a new SM, just graduated college last Sept, and currently switch from PM/SM/Construction crew jobs.

Currently working on my first dance show as a professional, with absolutely no background/experience in dance!

I'm sure I'll be nosing around and looking for bits of advice after a while :D

I'm also developing a new tool for SM's, which I think will be quite popular. I'll be keeping you in the dark about it for now ;) BUT, I'll be chatting to the admin about it and maybe getting some feedback.

Thanks everyone!
