Liz Blessing
 Consultant
Liz came to FDA in 2014 after having been the Technical Director of the Flea Theater in Tribeca.

In her three years at the Flea, Liz took care of the theatre's IT, building maintenance, carpentry, sound and lighting needs. With such a range of daily responsibilities, she learned what it takes to keep a small theater with a big reputation going in New York City. Liz worked on 28 shows as the Flea's Technical Director, 22 of which were world premieres, including Brian Watkins My Daughter Keeps Our Hammer, A.R. Gurney's Family Furniture, Hamish Linklater's The Vandal, Amy Freed's Restoration Comedy, Sean Graney's These Seven Sicknesses, and She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen.

Before her time at the Flea, Liz worked as a Draftsperson for I. Weiss Theatrical Solutions and an Engineering Assistant for City Theatrical, Inc. As an assistant at City Theatrical, Liz helped test their then new SHoW DMX system and worked on prototypes of custom CTI products for companies like Cirque du Soleil and Disney.

At I. Weiss, Liz became familiar with a wide variety of rigging solutions, as well as the construction co-ordination process, and helped develop documentation for in-house products such as the ViaLift. She also produced shop drawings for projects such as the renovation of The David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, Boston Conservatory, the Stephen Sondheim Theater, and the 52nd Street Project.

Liz is a 2007 graduate of the College of William and Mary with a B.S. in Computer Science.
