WORK

MY EXPERIENCE IN AND OUT OF THE WORKPLACE

InfoMedix

Production Manager

InfoMedix was a family business that ran from the early seventies under the name AudioStats, to the very end of the 1990s. I grew up in the industry of conferences learning all I could about audio recording and later video capture, duplication and on site sales as well.

ECE

Assistant to Florian Frere

In 1999 I was lucky enough to live in Paris, France. So with a degree in Psychology under my belt, I set out to explore Europe. I spent my days assisting an old friend at a technical college, speaking to eager young French students, and loving Paris. Spending 9 months traveling through Europe and soaking in another culture was a perspective growing experience from which I continue to draw.

Freelance A/V

IT, Audio & Video

I resumed my career in the conference industry back in New Orleans in 2000. I joined up with Vienna Abromowitz of Vienna Woods Productions. I worked with a variety of audio visual companies, honing my Powerpoint, and computer skills, and expanding my reach into all areas of audiovisual basics. By 2003 I had acted as a video engineer, audio engineer, project manager and technical director. I have always continued to record conferences, capturing camera and slides with our beloved talking heads.

Speaker Ready Room

Administrator

In 2001 I was introduced to the world of speaker ready rooms and quickly learned all aspects of that job. Since 2001, I have worked under systems that were basically created using the Windows file folder structure with raw networking, to systems  which utilize Debian Linux, Windows Server, and OS X server as backbones, and are able to utilize both MAC and PC software to provide speakers with the options the desire to present their material at conferences worldwide.

Digital Signs

Administrator

Student-Union-Digital-Sign-University-of-DaytonI've administered and created content for conference digital signs for a decade now. I enjoy the challenge of creating a visually interesting, interactive and informative sign.  Let's call that the three "I's" of signage. This is the perfect technology for conferences of all sizes.

Powerpoint Volume Preview

I had an idea this week while on show site.  I’m willing to bet a fair number of you reading this have used Microsoft Powerpoint in a live presentation setting. Many of you have also had a production crew to support you. Judging from the praise and thank you’s at the end of the show, those that […]
