John “Hokie” Hoekenschnieder

Senior Production Tech

Before avad3, I worked as a camp counselor at Space Camp and as an audio engineer for live music festivals.

The most inspiring part of my job is seeing the energy come alive in the rooms we work in!

My favorite aspect of event production is strike. I enjoy looking back on a show at the end and knowing it was a job well done.

When I’m not working, what makes me happiest is flying airplanes.

If I could have a superpower, it would be breathing underwater.
