Meet the Team: Garrett Walker
Who They Are: Co-Owner, Crown Design Group
What They Do: As Crown Design’s co-owner, Garrett got his start in the industry by being a technical director at a church that required high end production needs. Despite the large size of the church, the media department was all hands on deck and through that process he got to be exposed the entire back end of the audio visual industry. It wasn’t long before people started to notice his expertise. More and more people started to call up the church asking who did their AVL and asking for his assistance which was the birth of the Crown Design Group. Before he knew it this was turning into a full time side hustle job.
Quotable: “It was something that I felt like I was supposed to do, and I was deep into it. I was lucky enough to be involved in a church that was large enough to have very large-scale production needs. It was more than just a hobby or something to do to get a paycheck. It was something more real for us.”
His Best Scene: The Crown Design crew was helping Bayside church set up the lighting for their holiday exhibit but the team couldn’t work in peace, the bright lights kept attracting droves of mosquitoes.
