"Ryan's exemplary showcase of our core values along with his skills made him a perfect candidate for this new role as A.C.T Lighting continues to grow," says Will Murphy.  "Ryan never stands down from a challenge and is always happy to help - two very important qualities required for technical support."

Murphy also cites Kanarek's expertise with the MA software platforms - grandMA2, dot2, MA3D and the MA Network Switch - which are increasingly the choice of industry professionals.  "With the continued growth of those platforms it's important to have the knowledge our customers need at our fingertips.  Ryan will be integral in organizing this information for the software support team."

Kanarek says he enjoys working at A.C.T Lighting, "because, first of all, I get to work with the best lighting consoles in the business.  But even more than that, I get to build a broad and deep understanding of the software and then help other people to increase their own knowledge."

Prior to joining A.C.T Lighting Kanarek spent six years at Break the Floor Productions.  While there he served in various capacities, including Tour Lighting Designer for "JUMP," the largest touring dance convention in the world, which played 25-30 cities annually in North America, Mexico and Central America.  He was also Lighting Director, Master Electrician and Production Manager for four annual "A.C.E. Awards" shows. 

Kanarek has also freelanced as a programmer and electrician in NYC and Central NJ.  He is a 2008 cum laude graduate of Rutgers, and additionally attended the Stagecraft Institute of Las Vegas (SILV) in 2010.
