Stagecraft Industries Announces Gavin Christensen as New Dimming and Controls Specialist

Stage Directions • Changing Roles • May 4, 2021

Gavin Christensen

Stagecraft Industries announces that Gavin Christensen has joined its team in the position of Dimming and Controls Specialist. An Oregon native, he attended Western Oregon University studying all things theater. From there he worked in various capacities within the industry, including most recently with the Oregon Zoo Lights 2020, a seemingly impossible event with ever-changing state restrictions. Christensen was proud to lead this project through design, construction, and installation to provide his community with a safe exciting holiday activity.

His primary focus at Stagecraft will be project management and commissioning of the many lighting projects in the region. “I am very excited to have Gavin join our team” said Wendy Hammatt, Stagecraft’s Sales Representative for Electrical Products. “Gavin came highly recommended and we are looking forward to a very bright future.”

Outside of lighting, Christensen is jack of all trades and is often the go-to guy with his friends. “I love to build or fix anything. There isn’t a project too big or too small I won’t tackle.” He enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing games, and running after his son.

Effective immediately, Christensen may be reached at
