GABE POTHIER (TECH 2014) likes light. He also likes sound, color, hammers, nails, rigging and probably applause as well, but from backstage, the tech booth or somewhere in the wings.

This summer, Gabe is working Tech for “Rec Idol”, the highly successful talent show, open to tweens, teens and young adults city-wide. Sponsored by the San Francisco Parks and Recreation Department, Rec Idol invites singers, dancers, acrobats, musicians and magicians to compete for cash prizes, studio recording time and really, just for the fun of it all.

Gabe also helps manage the Tenderloin children’s playground, taking calls, keeping the peace and, in his own words: “…keeping crazy people out!”
