Taylor Roesch is a Gaffer and rental house owner who works throughout the mid-Atlantic on commercial projects as well as television and feature films.

Teamwork, problem solving, and always having fresh-brewed coffee are some of Taylor’s reasons for working in this industry.

This led him to pursue his own projects after graduation while getting his MAIS in Film Studies at George Mason University. With his extensive knowledge of lighting equipment and coursework in educational technology, Taylor produced a video tutorial series on HMI lighting and ballast repair for his masters thesis.
