Job Title: Global Product Marketing Manager — Component Loudspeakers
Company: Sound United
Years in Industry: 3
Where You Grew Up, Live Now: Born and raised in beautiful sunny San Diego, California!
Education: I attended college at Cal State University San Marcos and graduated with a BA in Mass Media and Telecommunications.
Accomplishments: Before CE industry I worked within sporting goods. I successfully deployed the first Shop-In-Shop program within the largest sporting goods dealer in the U.S. and it soon morphed to being one of the most profitable programs they've had. Within the CE industry I successfully launched the newest line by Polk Audio called the Legend Series, the newest flagship line bringing back Legendary SDA technology. The Legend launch was an ode to what put Polk Audio on the map back in the ’60s and ’70s; it was important to put Polk back on the map.
What I Like Best About My Job: I get to listen to music for a living, and get paid for it! Not too many people can say that they have to go listen to some brand-new speakers. It's amazing and I love every minute of it!
Last Book Read: Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
Favorite Pastime: My favorite hobby is grilling/smoking meat while hanging outside with friends and family.
Favorite Movie: Tropic Thunder and Avengers Endgame
Best Concert: Kendrick Lamar and a very close second is Elton John
If You Could be Anywhere Else: I’d be drinking a Pina Colada on a beach in Belize somewhere getting ready to go wipe-out surfing. Or, sipping a whiskey and listening to soul music while I have brisket on the smoker in the middle of Texas.
