Freelance Production Technician

Kia ora, I'm JR Richardson, and I work as a professional freelance audio engineer and production technician based in Nelson, New Zealand.

I provide a range of audio engineering, technical management, and production services to performing artists, events, venues and festivals.

I have the privilege of being the Venue Technical Manager for Nelson's leading professional venues The Theatre Royal & Nelson Centre of Musical Arts, as well as the Head of Sound for the Nelson Arts Festival, and Technical Director of Nelson Fringe (along with many other smaller roles).

Regardless of my role, I always endeavor to produce high-quality outcomes for discerning audiences and to maintain low-stress, safe and positive work environments for my clients and co-workers.

I also offer educational workshops on a wide variety of technical production topics.

Please explore my site to see what I do, and If you have any questions, please get in touch.
I am always happy to have a no obligation chat.

Nga mihi,

JR Richardson
