Michael Jarnagin, CEV/CEA, CTS
Mike’s path to the audiovisual world started when he was just 11 years old. That was when Mike began assisting his church with various audio and technology needs. He had a knack for picking up new skills; Mike quickly grew into his role and credits this early opportunity to how he found his later career path.
His interest continued to develop with live sound throughout his first few years of college, where Mike had many opportunities to mix for local, regional, and national artists. After departing college, he was invited to a live sound interview and accepted his first professional front-of-house audio engineering job for many popular recording artists throughout the 80s and 90s. After marrying his wife, Mike wanted to start a family and get away from life on the road. Mike utilized the knowledge and experience gained from designing and installing event-based audio, video, and lighting systems to begin his audiovisual integration career, working primarily in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Shortly after, he relocated to Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he currently resides, and has gained experience designing audiovisual systems for large projects for Fortune 500 corporate clients and production facilities. Along with his 35+ years of experience in the industry, Mike is also a Certified Video and Audio Engineer (CEV/CEA) with the Society of Broadcast Engineers and a Certified Technology Specialist (CTS). With his years of knowledge and expertise, Mike believes that the future of technology design will include more IP Video and less conventional video technology as 5G wireless networks and other ultra-high-speed data networks are perfected.
