Began her Steeldeck® education in London, England in 1994. Became Rental Manager in 1995, built a fabulous client list, and then yearned for more excitement, better weather and yet more theatres, so left Blighty for the Big Apple in 2001.
Director of Design and Production
Kristan began manufacturing Steeldeck® in London in 1990, and is involved in the production, research and development of our staging systems. He is very partial to antique motorbikes, and travels the world with them, to gather dust in new and more exotic climes.
Director of Special Projects
Alex joined the Steeldeck® team in the Fall of 2015. With a BFA in Theater Design & Technology, and background in lighting she has many years experience in the industry, and her skills range from drafting to puppeteering to scenic construction (so being part of our team is a somewhat seamless transition!)
Fabrication Workshop Manager
Liv joined the Steeldeck® team in the Spring of 2018. With extensive fabrication and installation experience she wields almighty power in the workshop and onsite. Her love of efficient shop methods and training really have the team ruthlessly organized!
Alicia joined the Steeldeck® team at the beginning of 2019, and in February 2020 became our Rental Manager. She has a BAs in Theatre & Economics and extensive experience in Stage Management. She impeccably dispatches all to where they need to be and curates “in-jokes” with her team.
Paul joined the Steeldeck® rental team in the Summer of 2019. He caught the “Steeldeck® bug” from his previous employment in the fabrication department. He did leave us for a brief stint in the corporate world, but decided that Steeldeck® was the place for him, and we are extremely happy about that. His door is always open for a chat, and can be found napping in a hammock on the roof during his lunch break (shhh, don’t wake him up)
Josh joined the Steeldeck® team in the Fall of 2015. He has a BA in Theater and Psychology and since graduating has had a myriad of experience from advertising to theater. As a people person Josh is in charge of our website and all of our social media.
Heriberto ‘Berto’ Flores joined Steeldeck® in 2008. He started in the rental department and is now our deck topping expert. He resides in “Berto’s Shop” (aka 143 Banker Street) and woe betide any team member who leaves decks or other equipment in his space……
Julius joined our Steeldeck® fabrication team in the Spring of 2017. He eats, sleeps and breathes Steeldeck® insisting on having his breakfast and lunch supported by a Steeldeck® platform (of course).
Khalfani joined the Steeldeck® fabrication department in the Summer of 2019. Not only has Khalfani added his experience and skills to our shop, but at a soaring 6’4″ he has eliminated our need for step ladders.
Jonathan joined the Steeldeck® fabrication department in the Summer of 2019. He came to us as a budding metalworker and strives to win a gold in the ‘make as many corner-posts as possible’ contest.
Joey joined the Steeldeck® team in the Autumn of 2019. He loves the thrill of the open road and can be witnessed driving around the Five Boroughs in the Steeldeck® trucks, EII & DC, attempting to avoid ‘spicy’ situations.
Antonio joined the Steeldeck® rental team in the Summer of 2019. As someone who is always agreeable to a challenge and one of the most photogenic members of our team, you can ‘take him anywhere’ and he will get the job done!
Ryder joined the Steeldeck® team in the Spring of 2019. He started as a fabrication assistant, but couldn’t resist the lure of the rental department, so is now a ‘double threat’. For Ryder, “no job is too big and no pup is too small.”
Darryl joined the Steeldeck® team in the Autumn of 2019. When he joined the team he confessed to our Warehouse Manager that he enjoyed lifting heavy things, it was then we knew he was a keeper!
Rental Associate & Driver
Dane joined the Steeldeck® rental team in the Autumn of 2019. His mastery of the Rubik’s Cube (to Championship standards) helps him navigate the streets of NYC in the Steeldeck® trucks, EII & DC.
Chief of Security
Berry came to us in 2008. He is extremely good at sleeping and staring at walls. He was a master at guarding all paperwork and the office with great attention to detail and has retired with Allan to Connecticut (to stare at trees instead of walls).
Wythe came to us in 2008, and sadly left us in 2017. She was very chatty and extremely good at catching mice. She was also a great escape artist and will be sorely missed, RIP our kittygirl.
