Step onto the field and get ready to meet the newest MVP of our team: David Paredes, the AV Project Manager extraordinaire and former semi-pro football sensation!

David doesn’t just tackle AV projects; he approaches them with the strategic finesse of a seasoned midfielder eyeing the goal. With a background in both the art of audiovisual mastery and the athleticism of the beautiful game, David brings a winning mentality to every project he touches.
Having traded his football boots for a pair of power cords, David’s journey from the pitch to the projector screen is nothing short of legendary. Rumour has it that his halftime speeches were so inspiring; they could make even the staunchest rival team reconsider their life choices.

Off the field, David’s competitive spirit doesn’t fade. Whether he’s fine-tuning our audiovisual experiences or organising the office fantasy football league, he’s always in it to win it.

He’s so good at his job, we suspect he’s actually a cyborg sent from the future to save us all from tech-related disasters.

Shaun’s love for technology runs deep – so deep, in fact, that he once fell into a Wikipedia rabbit hole and emerged 12 hours later with a newfound knowledge of the entire history of computing.

But don’t let his love for all things tech fool you – Shaun’s also a man of many talents. In his free time, he dabbles in stand-up comedy, and has been known to make even the grumpiest of tech support callers crack a smile.
