With a bag full of dreams and the bright energy of an inexperienced youth, she relocated to Vancouver from Nanaimo where she discovered the world of Hollywood North. Ruston found joy in the Lighting Department as soon as she set up her first baby bounce. The adrenaline from the quick set-up bursts to the dynamic working locations made it an exciting working environment that encouraged Ruston to explore the multiple layers of being a lighting technician. Her keen eye and passion to learn helped her gain opportunities in besting her own crew  and eventually gaffing second units on a popular series.
