Like many of my peers in the event production industry, I began to discover my passion at an early age. On my 13th birthday, I received my first guitar as a gift from my parents, and I knew at that moment I was taking my first steps down a road that I would follow for the rest of my life.
Leading into high school, I had the opportunity of spending a day job shadowing a touring band as they passed through my hometown area of Northwest Arkansas; it was my first real look behind the curtain of live event production, and I was instantly hooked. As I journeyed further down the road, I found myself touring the country with my own band, learning the nuances of stage-setup and sound-check, load-in and load-out, and discovering how much forethought and preparation goes into professional production.
My life adventure down the road less traveled has led me to my current role as a Production Tech with avad3, where it is our job to serve you and ensure that your event goes smoothly, start to finish. From the initial planning to the implementation and execution, there are always new obstacles to overcome and challenges to face, but there are few things as rewarding as seeing an event come together and exceed the expectation of our clients.
In my time with avad3, the constant encouragement has helped me to learn and grow, both personally and professionally.
