Grady Butler IV
I am an AV technician and web designer with an interest in technology and creativity. I currently live in Arizona but I plan to move to either New York or Pennsylvania as soon as I can. I enjoy doing challenging things and would excel in a job that puts my mental capacity to the test. My favorite thing in AV by far is troubleshooting; I like playing detective and deducing a problem to find a solution. I have a naturally inquisitive mind and I always like learning about the latest tech so that my skills are on point.
I have worked in multiple environments from hotels to churches to radio stations. I have done a bit of everything: live audio, audio production, audio mixing, camera operation, video editing, setting/striking, broadcasting, streaming, networking, coding, Windows administration, and using Ubuntu/Debian systems. I’ve used different types of AV equipment, examples including Beringer X32 Digital Boards, ATEM video switchers, and a few others. Basic setup of AV systems is a breeze for me, as is operating them if necessary in a live environment.
A lot of people are afraid to admit their weaknesses, but I like to be an open book. If possible, I would love to learn more about lighting and networking. I know the basics and can set up home networks and from an artistic/design perspective I excel at setting up lighting. However, I still have a bit to learn; lighting boards, DMX cable design and programming, and advanced networking are a few examples.
