Immediately after I graduated from University of Washington in 1983, I started working at Definitive Audio. Fresh out of college, I took great pleasure in sharing my passion for high performance audio to enthusiastic customers.
The funny thing is, I didn’t start Definitive Audio with visions of being a businessman… I was just a kid who had found a really hip place to work in a really cool industry. I never imagined that I’d be here 30 years later. From the very beginning, I knew that I wanted to curate all the things that originally made Definitive Audio unique — that undescribable vibe I got every time I stepped into our showroom. I figured out this vibe was a created through a combination of things, but what really stood out was the people at Definitive possessed a decerning ability to know the subtle differences between a product that was ‘good’ and a product that was the ‘very best’.
Today, after 30 years of being both an enthusiast and a businessman, my interest has not diminished in high performance audio and video. Our industry is always producing exciting new technology and is truly a melting pot for some of the most intelligent and interesting people I’ve met. In addition, I am full of gratitude for our customers. Particularly when I run across a customer who I personally sold to and they still choose Definitive for the latest in high performance gear.
For me, these relationships and the ability to share my hobby are the greatest rewards — It’s true… I dig my job!
