Christine McKenna, Journeymoman, 11 years

The place is like a maze. One day a wall will be open, and the next day they sheetrocked it and you can’t figure out how to get around. You might start out at one side of the building, then you go across a floor, down a floor, up a floor and end up all the way on the other side of the building in the middle of the courtyard. It’s pretty interesting. I get to learn a lot of new stuff. Normally I wouldn’t do lighting; now I have to learn different controls and building power management. I’m still trying to figure it all out. It’s amazing how they can control things from 400 feet away. They can control the 3rd floor from the 1st floor. It’s a lot of fun. They are going to put in a whole garden on the roof. There are not a lot of places like that. When I have kids, I’m going to take them to the aquarium and say. “I helped build this.” It really feels good. When I was a kid I always wanted to work here, and now I am, in a way.
