Hello and thanks for stopping by.
I'm basically all around tech person with a tech background and tech interests. That includes software, software programming and hardware. Really enjoy building new devices and have some interesting projects in my portfolio.
Since I started working in the AudioVideo industry in 2011 I was fortunate to be part of, or leading various projects for customers like: Mercedes Petronas F1 Team, Gordon Ramsay Restaurants, Soho House, Groucho Club, Neo Bankside Penthouse and various celebrity residential projects.
I would be happy to provide any remote and on site support. If required I have engineers at my disposal that could assist with various tasks. In addition I have direct contact with leading manufacturers and distributors that could provide a detailed insight into specific issues found in various situations.
