Brian Fitzmorris

In 2003, Professor of the Practice Brian Fitzmorris, partnering with Oxy Technical Director Aubree Cedillo, founded Lineset 10 Incorporated. Since the inception of the company, Lineset 10 has hired current students, alumni and technical theater staff to gain professional experience as stage technicians, stage managers and electricians for such events as the UNICEF Ball, the Princess Grace Awards, and the Homeboy Industries Lo Maximo Awards. Through Lineset 10, Professor Fitzmorris has maximized the positive impacts of the professional development opportunities that come from working as a Line Producer with higher budgets and top talent acts and applied those experiences to his teaching at Occidental.
