Best Youth Entrepreneur
What motivated you to start your business and what is your vision for the future of your company?
About 10 years ago, I came out of high school and knew I wanted to pursue some type of career in audio visual services, but I wasn’t fully sure where to begin. I had always been interested in tech, design, and construction, and wanted to find something that would be the perfect fit for me. After working with a close business friend at a local sound company, I started to build up my knowledge in sound, lighting, and production services. I knew I wanted to provide excellent customer service, have a successful relationship with my clients, and be able to give back to our community, and the concept of running my own company began to take shape. GK Sound started out of the back a beat-up Ford Ranger, providing equipment for many weddings and small events, and –with the help and support of my family - I slowly built up the funds and clientele to begin a business on my own. From the small times came bigger ones, and GK Sound has grown into a successful company that continues to evolve. We are a production company that specializes in professional audio, lighting, and design services for a variety of events, and are continuing to grow every year. Our vision for the future is to keep growing – both with our services and our staff – adapt when needed, continue to be a reliable business to our clients, and be the go-to audio visual company in our region.
Why do you deserve to win the Best Youth Entrepreneur award?
Building a business is no small feat – any entrepreneur will tell you that. It takes endless time, exorbitant effort, and a lot of support along the way. I consider myself lucky to have been able to get to where I am, and never thought I would be running such a successful business under the age of 30. I’ve managed to build a company that is recognizable in our community, and is full of people who share the same sentiment and commitment to our work. GK Sound is constantly raising the bar of what is possible in event production in our region, and brings excitement and engagement to the landscape. We have a client base that looks to us to make their events the very best, and we are consistently able to achieve results, even when times get tough. The audiovisual industry is constantly growing and evolving, and we look forward to growing with it.
