Stage Manager for the Fest
Gemma Seymour is a multidisciplinary professional with a particular interest in how land tenure policy impacts social justice, economic inequity, human well-being and self-actualization, and environmental sustainability. She is a Filipina-American native of New York City, a graduate of Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan, and attended Carnegie-Mellon University for Music Theatre and Theatre Design. She has over 20 years of experience in public performance, audio engineering, and technology consulting, specializing in network design and Internet communications infrastructure, as well as support for creative industry professionals.
Her tiny house project is an 8x16 tiny house on wheels for a single person or intimate couple, with an additional 8x4 enclosable porch/greenhouse and a sleeping loft. It is designed for minimum waste, minimum weight, minimal consumption, and maximum efficiency, capable of being built incrementally by a single person on a tight budget using conventional stick framing, and intended for off-grid sustainability in cold or mixed climates, such as those comparable to Southern Vermont, the Eastern Seaboard, and the Pacific Northwest. This is her second year with Tiny House Fest Vermont.
