Jim Ricks-White
Technical Director, Facilities Manager, Resident Lighting Designer

With over 30 years in theatre, Jim is pleased to be joining the B&B Resident Artist family. Jim has worked professionally as a Production Stage Manager and Stage Manager (Civic Light Opera Seattle, Spokane Interplayers, Stumptown Stages), Technical Director, Lighting and Set Designer (Innovation Theatreworks, Tower Theatre, Portland Actors Ensemble), Properties Artisan and all-around Theatre Tech (the list goes on and on…) in venues as small as 99-seat black box theatres, and as large as the Olympic Stadium for the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics. Basically, he has yet to meet a theatre tech job he didn’t like – or at least enjoy! Jim also teaches technical theatre at PCC Sylvania and has held numerous administrative positions in theatre during his career. In his free time, Jim loves to travel, explore great food and enjoys working off steam swinging a German longsword at his local HEMA gym, Indes Western Martial Arts. Jim looks forward to being able to help to nail down some good storytelling and bring the B&B season to light!
