More about Mike Smail:

I’m the theaters manager at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium, responsible for all aspects of day-to-day operation of our two domed theaters and our flatscreen 3D-capable theater. This involves working with a small team on systems programming, maintenance, presentation, production, and more for our general public, school, and event audiences.

Before coming to Adler, I worked at the Pennington Planetarium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where I produced content, and was part of the group that put together the highly successful IPS 2012 conference.
