Lightning Round Interview
Where are you from?
St. Louis born and raised.
How did you get into the AV industry?
Started as communications major at UMSL with a focus on video production. I was working full time and watching the Blues game when a friend asked me to do some stats for their sports production. Then, I started setting up the equipment. It wasn’t too much longer before I was running the boards in the studio. Fell in love with AV, and the rest is history.
What is an interesting fact most people don’t know about you?
I am a 42 grandfather of 6.
What is the last song you listened to?
Greek Fire – Top of the World
What are common misconceptions people outside of your field have about your job?
The cost of the technology and everything it takes to implement in a way that solves the challenges in the client’s head – both known and unknown challenges.
What would your superhero name be?
What are your biggest pet peeves?
I don’t like it when people say, “that’s not my job”. There is a difference between staying in your lane and not being a good team player.
What show(s) are you currently binge-watching?
I’m bout to start Yellowstone.
What makes a good leader?
Who is the coolest marketing person you have ever met?
That would have to be Dane. (That was the right answer)
