As the Tech PA, I was the first person called in the morning to retrieve the cube truck from Brooklyn and drive it to location after picking up members of our team. I helped load and unload gear but, during the day, I was on call to assist wherever needed. This included petty cash handling, helping the field team if they were shorthanded, and going on runs. For a few days, there was a second Tech PA to take over at night, but for the majority of the time I was both the opener and closer of this shift.
