Hello, thank you for visiting my page!

My name is Joshua Eric Rusinov. I am a Lighting Designer & Theatrical Technician in the NYC Area.

I initially began pursuing a career in Mathematics at Wayne State University. But after being reminded of my true passion for theater and the love I have for what I do I switched into a Design and Production major.

After experiencing a full sophomore year at Wayne I applied, was admitted to, and transferred as a sophomore to Purchase College, SUNY, where I have recently graduated, earning a B.F.A. in Theatre Design/Technology with a concentration in lighting design and technical direction.

Unique Challenges/Elements
      • This production of Fen was done in a 35’ by 50’ by 20’ black box.
      • This theater contains a complete wire-rope tension grid
      • The main scenic element was a large stage deck made of real dirt that needed to be sprayed with water and alcohol nightly
        • This created challenges with:
          • Units or Equipment installed in and around the dirt
          • Power management and planning
          • The focusing of units above the stage
      • The other large scenic elements were 2 large mirror walls on SL & SR, this created a lot of room for experimentation with light reflection
