John “Hokie” Hoekenschnieder
I began doing live events when I was in high school and was the only guy who really knew how to operate the lighting and sound console. When I went to college I started a job in production. I was in charge of any events that the university held across campus. It was also during that time that I started doing sound for spring and summer music festivals in the city. I could not believe that I was getting paid to learn more about what I was passionate about. On top of all that, I also worked for a local production company. I experienced a wider variety of events and venues and helped to expand inventory and come up with creative solutions big and small to get the job done.
I chose to work for avad3 because it was evident from the start that this company is true to their values; service, professionalism, growth, and being a team player.
