Rocky Paulson started rigging in 1969 at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. In 1973 he became a member of IATSE. That same year he went to work for NBC as a rigger for the Disney on Parade shows, as well as working as a production rigger on NBC’s production of Peter Pan. After traveling on several continents with these shows, Rocky did many rock tours. In 1977 he formed the first entertainment rigging production company. Since that time Stage Rigging has maintained its position as one of the most respected rigging companies in the US. At the end of 2005, Rocky retired from Stage Rigging, but has continued teaching activities.
