Big thanks to superstar employee, Jill Dockter, for her excellent audio work during the student choir Winter Sing event at the Katherine Delmar Burke School in SF! I’m fortunate to have her working with my company, A Sound Objective. And I’m proud to provide her with opportunities to learn and grow as a live-sound/concert engineer. I’ve trusted Jill on some difficult gigs but also did everything I could to set her up each time for a confidence building win.
This gig was also important because the Katherine Delmar Burke School is dedicated to educating, encouraging and empowering girls from grades K-8. It’s important these young performers and students see examples of professional women happily succeeding in technical roles (sound, lighting, video, etc.). It’s a much needed and long overdue change for female-identifying people to be taking the lead in the world of audio so as an employer I’m glad to step back and be the “assistant engineer” at times. -Paul (Owner)
