What is your new position, and what does it entail?
My new position is national sales manager, Installation & Nightclubs. The job entails product development, with the engineering of a state-of-the-art dance club and lounge loudspeaker, amplifier and signal processing that will position DAS Audio as a premier club sound provider. The position focuses on helping installation dealers progress with club sound system design and integration, and also allows DAS to design, commission and provide support for on-site project management.
How has your background prepared you for your new role?
I have been involved in nightclubs since 1992. I have worked in the largest Manhattan nightclubs, and I have handled technical matters for eight nightclubs located on Pleasure Island for Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. I have an extensive installation background encompassing some of the premier nightclubs in the United States. When I was previously with Ohm Productions of Washington, D.C., I was involved in Echo Stage, the number-one club according to DJ Magazine. I have worked with every major headlining DJ and have worked with every product available for dance clubs.
