Started my career in the insurance industry, specifically Workers comp. Eleven years ago I answered a call from an old friend I went to grade school with and he asked me to come help him manage his broadcast cabling company. That old friend is Carl Craver and the company is Viper Cabling Inc. WE handle everything from small voice and data /AV installs to large broadcast projects. I took over Carl's spot on the ITS Council and have been volunteering ever since 2012. I am excited to have been recently elected as the ITS Council chair. As the new Chair I hope to recruit new members that would like to be a part of our next charity project.
Up through May 2022, I managed the AV Engineering & Operations team at the University of North Georgia. We maintained multiple campuses of classrooms with control systems in each and we worked with a team of support technicians who handle work on incident management while we handled incident escalations as well as problem management, change management, and request fulfillment (to use the ITIL vernacular).
I now work as a Design Engineer for AVI-SPL, based out of the Atlanta, GA office. I work with the Account Managers to design systems for customers prior to sales, then work with the post sales team once a system is purchased.
Managed Audio Visual services for School District 197 that includes Two Rivers High School, two (2) middle schools, and five (5) elementary schools. Provide leadership and management to the Audio Visual department. CareHawk system administrator for the two middle schools. Started a service club for Two Rivers High School and District called Tech Warriors. Tech Warriors provided level 1 computer support, event production services, and TV/Streaming production.
