About Cat West

Hi programmers! This page is for those of you who want to go beyond the busk. I'm Cat West. I make training videos focused on lighting programming. My regular gig is programming lighting and video: mostly for concert tours, but also live broadcast, television and corporate events. I started in a club in Vegas in 2000, and even worked as a training specialist for High End Systems, where I started their online video training series in 2006. I also created the official grandMA2 tutorial series for MA Lighting. I've been lucky enough to travel the world with some great acts, and to start my own company, Flash and Trash Works.

Joining my crew means you've got direct access to me. We can talk about real world programming techniques, ways to make your programming more efficient... whatever you're thinking about.  But, this isn't tech support.  There's some wonderful companies that already offer that stuff for free! 

Each tier is a little different, but all tiers will get early access to my Consoletrainer tutorials.  Then, if you join my Tour Crew or Design Team, there's the grandMA2 Macro collection to download, bonus exclusive content (including special group Crew Zoom Sessions) and even a crew sticker after 3 months. Design Team gets extra exclusive quarterly merch. 

Joining my crew at any level helps to support my free training series at youtube.com/consoletrainer. In those videos, I try to explain things as simply as I can. Sometimes this stuff can get complicated, but I can usually break it down.
