Scott Madaski
 Consultant
Scott came to FDA in September 2013 from all corners of the world, having spent a majority of the previous two decades as a technician, production manager, entertainment technical supervisor and, finally, a consultant for many major cruise lines.

Scott is currently FDA's principal rigging designer on The Culture Shed in New York, the Xiqu Centre for Chinese Opera in Hong Kong, and The Grand Opera House in Manila, as well as the Utah Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City. He is also collaborating on The Duke Ellington School of Music in Washington, DC, Greenhill High School in Greenhill, Texas, and the Gaillard Auditorium in Charleston, South Carolina.

While his time on ships has taken him to exotic locales, Scott has also worked domestically, touring with major Broadway shows, as a member of the show crew for the 1996 Olympic Ceremonies in Atlanta, Georgia, and spending a number of years as the production rigger for Harley Davidson.

He has designed and managed unique performer flying and automation systems for Sight & Sound Theatres, The Power Station Club in Singapore, and the original production of "Curtains" on Broadway.

Scott received his M.F.A. in technical direction and production from Northern Illinois University, where he also taught as an adjunct professor.
