About Me

My interest in Audiovisuals started back in 2012 from my passion for electronic music. I started with djing private parties, which involved renting and setting up my own Public Address systems. After graduating high school in 2015, I enrolled in the Art Institute of Vancouver (now known as La Salle College) to study professional recording arts. In 2017 I graduated under the dean's list with a diploma of professional recording arts, and Immediately after graduation, I was able to get hired with Fortune Sound Club as a Junior technician. Working my way up, I am now a Senior Technician operating sound for some of the biggest artists in pop culture today.


  At Fortune Sound, I am responsible for everything technical that was advanced from high-level touring to local talents. Communication was very important as we are always working with new artists and different gears we need to accommodate. If any issues come up during shows, I quickly troubleshoot them without getting overwhelmed with the pressure. With my 5+ years of AV tech experience, I want to broaden my knowledge in AV as a Media Engineer with Animal Logic.
