Playing music, surfing, traveling, economics and restoring old cars

Why I Surf with Waveguide

My favorite part of being an AV designer is when a client hears or sees their new system for the first time, and immediately feel relieved. Knowing that it’s going to make their lives and jobs easier is very fulfilling.
