Event Planning for Technical Directors

Posted by delta on July 17th, 2014

My new book is out on Amazon/Kindle already and will be out on iTunes most likely Sunday. I’d really like any input any of you may have on either of my books – slip me an email when you get the chance and let me know what you think of them…

I’ve been writing a lot lately. Probably because I have found the perfect subjects to write about (for me at least)…

My next book will start a series that history buffs, and those who enjoy poetry, will like… I’m going to write the second book before the first; so, if I want to publish them in order, it will be a while before they go on sale. I’d give you more info than that, but you’ll read it all shortly…

Hana Mana Productions & Hana Mana Honey

Posted by delta on June 12th, 2013

It’s official!  I’m gonna move the business stuff for this site to hanamanaproductions.com once I make the site live – and leave this one for my personal blog…

Also in the works is hanamanahoney.com – where I’ll be running the beekeeping/honey/mead products and services…

Just got the business names with the State, and the domains with netsol, so now I just gotta work on the site…

Thanks Everyone!

Posted by delta on February 18th, 2013

I really want to thank everyone for not only the nice one liners, such as “Yes! You finally came out of retirement!”, but for putting me right back at the top of the your call sheets as if the last few years was just a hiccup. I really appreciate it!

Free At Last! Free At Last!

Posted by delta on December 31st, 2012

Alright! Today is my last day as the full-time Technical Director for Swank Audio Visuals out here in Hawaii. It’s not a bad thing! I’m still going to be working with them on an on-call basis; and, from what I gather, I will still be PM’ing a show for them from time to time…

There’s, obviously, no bad blood there…

Anyway, I’m booked this coming week and the 22nd to the 27th, but if anyone needs me just give me a call…

Dave’s Back!
