Meet Jon – Theme Team [Episode 3]
Theme Team – Episode 3
This is the third episode in a series called Theme Team. In these videos, we introduce you to our amazing staff and show off how they deliver the WOW effect in everything they do. Below is a transcript of the video.
I’m Jonathan Ramey. I work here at Creative Works in the Escape Department.
Originally, I’m from Cheshire, Ohio. It’s, a small town right on the border of West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio.
In the Escape Department you have to have a little knowledge of everything.
My uncle Bert first got me into the woodworking side. He taught me how to use the tools properly as well as, he really got my interest sparked in that.
I learned wiring from being a member of National Model Railroad Association.
I did drive a steam locomotive in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. It was originally made in 1925, I believe. And it was still one of the coolest things I have done so far.
I do have some background in musical instrument repair, mainly guitars, amplifiers, things like that.
I played in a couple of different bands ranging from blues to heavy metal. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot of how to pack things up quickly, efficiently, and make sure you got everything.
In the Escape Department we bring the magic to life.
I like all the interesting little props and things I get to work on day in day out. One day, it might be reactor, next day an Egyptian sarcophagus. It’s just whatever is thrown at me. It”s always an adventure.
