INSTALL TECH

Are you a sound or AV contractor with more work that you can handle with your present staff...but not ready to hire more full-time people? Or do you experience a lot of wild fluctuations in your workload? Or are you taking on your biggest project yet?

I can help...whether as another set of hands, as a lead on a long-term project, or self-supervised on a small one-man job. (I can also assist with design and engineering tasks, such as cable pull schedules, conduit schedules, and DSP programming. Click here to see more about my Project Management & Engineering services.)

I have worked on hundreds of sound and video installations of all types: 70-volt systems for paging and background music; PA systems for auditoriums, houses of worship, and nightclubs; data display systems for call centers and trading floors; display, audioconferencing, and videoconferencing systems for meeting rooms and classrooms; digital signage systems; recording and post-production studios; and more. (Many of the installs I've worked on have wireless audio systems of some sort - one of my strongest areas of expertise.) Projects I've been a part of or did solo as a private contractor include background music and paging installations for Dollar Tree Stores and Aeropostale outlets, displays for Micheal Kors retail stores, conference room AV systems at Walgreen's and Baxter corporate headquarters, a product showcase and theater at Lucent (now Alcatel), an interactive infotainment semi trailer for Chevron Oil, gymnasium sound systems for School District 211 in Palatine, IL, sound system upgrades for Deer Creek Christian Church, classroom AV installs at numerous Robert Morris University campuses, trading floor data displays for Magnetar Capitol, and numerous others.

I own enough tools to cover most install and commissioning tasks, including a small truck and various ladders. I also have a laptop with CAD, an audio analyzer, editors for numerous digital audio devices, and all the standard business software. And, I pride myself on my positive, can-do attitude, my team skills, and ability to quickly learn new systems and adapt to different ways of doing things. But most of all I'm proud of my listening skills, which I apply to troubleshooting and tuning any sound system.
