Lead Installer

Home Theater Of Long Island

As a lead Installer at HTOLI, My role is to lead my team to complete the very high standards of Luxury Home automation and theater Installation. I provide a "white Glove" service which consists of working very close in proximity to priceless artwork and breakable valuables. All rooms and work areas are taped off with plastic and paper. There is a very different way to work in mansions and luxury spaces, I am trained well in the careful and slow process and possess the steady hand you need to achieve happiness  to a perfectionists eye. 

Before this position I was an Electrician, so I believe that brings balance to it all, an electrician is quite fast and gets it done. 

I have learned alot in my time in this position, including: savant, crestron, amx, mobotix, URC, extending vidoe over cat5, rack work, lutron lighting homeworks and hq, qmotion shades, and more.

This is my present job, please dont call.

Managing Director - Installer

Totally Wired

I Started working for this company in 1993 in San Diego, CA. As a Lead Installer/Supervisor an opportunity arose in 2000 to open and lead the NY office and become a partner in the company. Based out of the Bronx, NY I lead a company of 6-10 men specializing in CCTV cameras, electrical, phone, cable, Anything with wires.. Our clientele ranged from high rise property management contractors to low end residential service calls. After 9 years of building a business and many, many long nights, I decided to close our doors to focus on my family and instead work for a good company.
