Troy's background began in motion picture and television production before migrating to association show management with the Society for Optics & Photonics. Here he took on the role of managing the Audio Visual logistics at their dozens of events across the globe including a 20,000 attendee conference & trade show. After successfully designing an award-winning immersive experience for the recognition of the 50th anniversary of the laser, he realized that he wanted to bring the skills he learned as an association planner to other associations and organizations across the globe. In 2010 he became a Certified Technology Specialist with the Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association (AVIXA) and has been combining technology and story-telling experiences for his clients ever since. Troy is an active volunteer and speaker within our industry, having been a part of faculty or served on committees, BODs, and executive teams across North America.
