As noted, working in the industry is a family legacy for Gaynor being the third-generation member in the live entertainment industry. “I have to say I love this industry because I basically grew up in it,” explains Gaynor. “It started with my grandfather, Erwin Harris who worked as a local NYC stagehand and then started American Stage Lighting Company. He owned it for over 30 years and as a kid I’d run around the shop, super interested in what everyone was doing. During high school, I went to work with my dad, Bob Gaynor at Bash Theatrical Lighting. That’s when I really knew I wanted to do this for a living. So, it all started in my grandfather’s little brick lighting warehouse in New Rochelle, NY and now I get to bring that sense of commitment to my work at this big lighting warehouse in Las Vegas, NV.”
