I worked at BSW in the 90’s as a digital product specialist, demonstrating and training customers on how to use the new Spread Spectrum Radio systems(forerunner to Wifi)Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) and automation systems that BSW sold at the time. I had a lot of fun going all over the country showing these products off.
Then, I was made an offer I could not refuse and went back into engineering. I worked for a group of several radio stations in the Seattle Market, then went to Boise, Idaho and was the C.E. of group of radio stations there. Eventually became the local Director of Engineering for the group, which included 6 Radio and 2 Commercial Full power and 1 Low Power TV station. In 2011, I moved back to Seattle and was the C.E. for a group that owned 2 TV Stations.
In August of 2015, I was welcomed back to BSW. While I was away, I also became the SBE Boise Chapter Chair and was Idaho State EAS Committee Broadcast Chair (S.E.C.C.) for over 10 years. I also managed the group tower site. These experiences have helped me to be able to answer my customers / clients questions and find the correct solution for their equipment needs.
