Nathaniel (Nate) Hall, manager of design for Nautilus Entertainment Design, passed away unexpectedly Monday, July 17, 2017. He was 36.
Hall came to the company after spending 15 years in the contracting and live entertainment fields. After receiving his BFA from University of North Carolina School of the Arts, he was the lead sound designer and assistant technical director for a liberal arts university in Elon, NC, and continued to work shows around the southern United States. He moved to San Diego in 2004 where he became a lead project engineer for a top 50 systems integrator. He has been featured in FOH magazine for his system design and installation of the audio system at the Gila River Arena and was published along with a colleague in ITAV magazine for his extensive work in networking for AV.
At Nautilus, Hall worked on cruise ship projects for Seabourn, Costa Asia, and Carnival, a theatre consultation for St. Augustine’s High School, and most recently, the Harry Potter Nighttime Lights show at Universal Studios Hollywood. He was pursuing a post-graduate engineering degree in acoustics from Pennsylvania State University at the time of his death.
Jim Tetlow, president of Nautilus Entertainment Design stated, “Although Nate had only been with us for a year, he was an important member of our team and on the fast track for a key management position in the company. We will miss his knowledge, perseverance, people skills, and great attitude.”
Hall is survived by his mother and father, Norine and Mark Hall and brother, Matt.
