Today, the company he founded – Majic Productions – has grown into one of the premier sound and lighting companies in the region with more than 40 audiovisual professionals! We still believe in giving our customers over-the-top service. And we still have a great time putting together events that entertain and impress!

We love what we do! And we think you will too. If you’re planning a corporate event, wedding, gala or fundraiser, or you have a gig on the calendar, we would welcome the chance to talk with you about the handling your sound, lighting and video needs.
