Alex Valdez

Theater Technical Director

Professional focus: I teach the Technical Theatre afternoon activity and oversee the day-to-day operations of the Susan A. Nelson Performing Arts Center.

Scholarly or professional activities: When I’m not at Webb, I am away at Camp Walden in Denmark, Maine serving as the operations liaison and technical director. I manage summer programming and design and build the sets for the summer musicals in Camp Walden’s Theater Department.  

Grew up: Redlands, California

Favorite spot at Webb: My favorite spot at Webb is the theater. It is my second home and the place where I have the most fun on campus.

Favorite music or musician: Depends on my mood, but I enjoy the blues and jazz the most.

Favorite book or author: Give me all the spooky, weird, and creepy that Stephen King has to offer!

Favorite TV show or movie: I have too many favorites to list, but I want TV shows to make me laugh and movies to make me think.

Saturday routine: Most Saturdays are for workdays in the theater, the productions never quit! But for those few Saturdays to myself, I will sleep in, enjoy as many uninterrupted cups of coffee as I please, and enjoy as much time outdoors as possible (there aren’t many windows in a theater).
