Having grown up as the nephew of two Broadway actors, Patrick Dierson always had a backstage view of what it took to produce a successful theatre show. Originally from Long Island, N.Y., he has built an impressive career designing the lighting and projections for large-scale concerts and television and corporate appearances. He spent two years studying Performance Theatre in community college before jumping right into the industry with an automated lighting equipment company, quickly moving on to a successful console programming career and is now a full-time designer.
Dierson's expertise has been called upon for numerous high-level productions, including the promotional world tour of Latin pop sensation Shakira, the Wynn Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, the MTV Video Music Awards, various appearances for artists on VH1, and numerous special events for the NFL, NBA, & NHL sporting organizations. His work is nothing short of presidential as well-being called upon to work with several past Commanders In Chief working closely with the White House Communications Agency. He earned an Emmy® Award nomination for his work on the post September 11th musical telethon America: A Tribute to Heroes.
