Senior Director of Development for AVIXA in EMEA with over 20 years experience in AV and IT industries.
Started off in sound engineering in the late 90s then pursued a career in IT. After working in web development I returned to AV and have not looked back! I do at times pine to work more directly with the amazing technology available today to help create great AV experiences but I do get to see them being shared and celebrated! I look forward to seeing many of those examples on the Xchange!
As Content Manager, I develop both in-person and digital programs for AVIXA. I'm always looking for new content ideas that highlight topics and trends of importance to the AV industry, particularly in the areas of Content Production and Streaming, Learning and Live Events. My favorite part of my job is finding cool immersive experiences for our tours during InfoComm. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts.
Presently as Country Manager, AVIXA for India and GCC, I do aspire to support the AV & IT industry with access to the resources that are most beneficial to the businesses and professional outcomes.
My focus will be to bring to the AV/IT community in the region, knowledge and skill development through AVIXA Education, Certification and Training Resources. I look forward to work closely with allied associations, industry groups and professional society in the region with a similar focus.
And my areas of interest and learning are indeed the Emerging Technologies (what we know as AI, Metaverse, Cloud, Industry 4.0, and the likes) and how they impact what we do in our professional and personal lives as Humans!
Do feel free to reach out to me.
