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.
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!
Taylor joined the Steeldeck® team in the Spring of 2022. With a background in Production Design she started her Steeldeck® journey as a Production Assistant and after plying the team with home made cookies worked her way up to be our Rental Manager. A menagerie of magical creatures surrounds her desk and a fluffy pencil topper bobs away merrily as she efficiently oversees your rental orders.
Xeli joined the Steeldeck® NY team in the Summer of 2023. With a background in stage management and a love for theater they meticulously organize the rental order ready for your production. When they are not devising new efficiency methods for the rental department and lending their aesthetic to spruce up the rental workspace, they can be seen working out at their desk using the iconic Steeldeck® M10 x 60 bolt as a tiny dumb-bell.
Liam joined the Steeldeck® NY team in the Autumn of 2022. With a BFA in Film Studies and a plethora of customer service experience, he is the first stop for all clients calling, emailing and visiting our Brooklyn office. If you are lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time you will be serenaded by his fabulous falsetto as he whirls busily around Steeldeck® World.
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).
Gerard has seemingly been a Steeldeck® fixture forever. One of the (in)famous Barrington clan, he officially joined the Steeldeck® fabrication team in the Spring of 2022. He is another ‘double threat’ as he is very handy when working with the Rental team.
Moulaye joined the Steeldeck® fabrication team in the Winter of 2021. He performs every task assigned to him with the rhythm of a dancer and consistently has a smile to share.
Rubens joined the Steeldeck® fabrication team in the Fall of 2023. As the newest member, he is currently getting acclimatized to the Steeldeck® method, along with the rest of the fabrication & rental team, who are happy to have him!
Josh joined the Steeldeck® NY team in the Spring of 2023. He began his Steeldeck® journey as a driver and worked his way up to Warehouse Manager in a New York minute. He has extensive knowledge of New York production facilities and loves to get back on the road once in a while. Always smiling and ready to help, he has a keen eye for fashion and a love of Hip-Hop and New England Clam Chowder.
Assistant Warehouse Manager & Rental Team Associate
Antonio started with the Steeldeck® rental team in the Summer of 2019, then had a brief hiatus (like a lot of us folk in the Entertainment Industry). He then reappeared in the Summer of 2022. We are very happy he came back to us as he organizes the warehouse with ruthless efficiency and is just as comfortable installing Steeldeck® platforms in venues all around the Tri-State area and beyond.
Crew Lead & Rental Team Associate
Amani joined the Steeldeck® NY team in the Spring of 2023. When not on-site installing Steeldeck® platforms, she wears many hats; as a nursing student, Steeldeck® ‘stretch-circle’ advocate, and elected warehouse “guard dog”. Amani loves all creatures great & small (except mosquitoes) and will rescue any animal in need, but will always protect her pack when necessary.
Transport Co-Ordinator & Rental Team Associate
Julio joined the Steeldeck® NY team in the Spring of 2023. He came to us with a great deal of driving experience so he is now responsible for all of the Steeldeck® fleet, especially our beloved flatbed, ‘Queen Victoria’ on which he ferries platforms to all our clients and Tri-State venues. After every shift he goes to the gym, sporting a cut-off Steeldeck® T-shirt.
Driver & Rental Team Associate
Charlie joined the Steeldeck® NY team in the Summer of 2023. With years of trucking and industry experience he loves to be on the road, either in a Steeldeck® truck, or on his beloved Hog, and will deliver your Steeldeck® platform order swiftly and efficiently. When at the Banker Street warehouse he greets all passing dogs with a ‘hello’ and a tasty treat.
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.
