Asset Management Specialist

From: I was born in Albuquerque, NM and raised in Jacksonville, FL.

Favorite thing about this industry: I love diagnostics and improvisation. There’s always a pre-existing structure and then all the changes require A/V technicians to think on their feet really quickly.

Inspired by: Seeing people act from a compassionate place. When I see people working really hard, finding ways to be efficient, and putting others in a position to be successful, it forces me to think of ways in which I might do the same.
