How long have you been working in the Audio Visual industry? Approximately 35 years

What made you want to be in this industry? I have always had a great passion for electronics; my parents encouraged this from an early age. In the mid-1970s as I was entering junior high I was asked to assist with sound reinforcement for most of the school plays and musicals. In the 1980s I became a TV repair tech while still in high school, but had a stronger interest in high-fidelity audio systems. After graduating high school, I focused my career path on Pro-Sound systems, CAD design, installation, tuning and training. As video display and integration became more mainstream in the late 1980’s, I started adding those systems together with what we now refer to as AV Integration. As they say, the rest is history.

What do you love the most about this industry? I am always excited to see the technology evolving. I also love to work with clients and help them develop unique solutions to their AV needs.

How do you like the Houston area? The Houston area is so diverse; I really enjoy the world-wide cultures that co-exist in the local communities, and visiting with people from all around the World. Also- the dining selections are fantastic!

What do you think about the Houston AV market? The market is very competitive which motivates us to pursue high quality, fair pricing, excellent service, and provide exceptional value to our customers.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself? In the summer of 95’ my dad and I were in San Diego and I had “the greatest” salad ever at this small café near the beach. Since then, I have been in pursuit of a salad equal to that one. I have enjoyed many but have yet to have one equal to the famous “San Diego Salad”.
