Hometown: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Mason, automätik’s resident Canadian (eh!), grew up in the Great White North, living out all the stereotypes you might be thinking of right now: hockey on frozen ponds, ice fishing, curling, maple syrup poured on snow (look it up!), and of course being a self-proclaimed lumberjack.
While Mason lived in eight different U.S. states—and a van (ask him about it!)—Arizona has been home for a while. That is, ever since he showed up to a friend’s wedding a decade ago and ended up saying his own “I do” to his wife Kim! According to Mason, she had him at hello.
In his late teens and early 20’s, Mason traveled coast-to-coast as a professional skateboarder and tour team leader, running a 50-city skate park tour with multiple teams and performing for crowds of 30,000+ people. The net result was a lifetime’s worth of experience client-facing and crowd-pleasing. Following his skating career, Mason pursued a Craigslist ad and took a job as a tile setter’s apprentice. There, he grew into a Project Manager position and helped build a construction company that grew from two to twelve employees in just a few short years.
Mason’s construction expertise and unmatched attention to detail make a perfect match for our in-house Production team.
In modern meeting and event planning, you simply cannot ignore the need for attendee connectivity to the internet. Whether we’re talking about ordinary activities like email and texting, or more intensive access via digital event guides or media-heavy apps, it has fast become an expected essential to a functioning event.
Whenever you create a video or commission the production of one, a variety of creative factors, usage rights and distribution methods must be considered to ensure accurate budgeting and to avoid any legal snafus. The three main categories that need to be evaluated up front to determine anticipated licensing fees are visual assets, music, and talent.
Many events and trainings call for some sort of learning aid for participants to utilize and reference. Whether it’s a simple meeting agenda, an event schedule, or a comprehensive resource such as learning guides or reinforcement quizzes, you’ll likely need participants to efficiently access key information to increase learning retention.
