Michael Colley is what you would call a 'legacy' in the business. Growing up with his dads A/V business, he was installing systems long before he could even drive (legally). This explains his tremendous capability to evaluate and design residential and commercial systems for hundreds of our customers. He leads up our Kansas City office and can handle projects of all sizes and shapes.

Lead Technician & Programmer
Our longest standing technician, Jesse has been with us since 2003. This guy knows his stuff, so much so that 'tech-speak' is a second language to him. When he's not in deep with a computer programming awesome automation and control systems for us, he's usually doing the exact same thing at his own house. (Thats dedication!)

Someone has to dot all the lower-case j's and cross all the t's, and "Mrs. Sheila" is the one that keeps all of us in line. An accountant by trade, she oversees our financial operations and makes sure things at her end of the office are kept tidy. What a lady.
