Paul joined our team as Senior Technician in mid-2017. His experience is extensive: He has gained a wealth of knowledge in Audio and Lighting through working on large Cruise Lines and with world-renown PRG Gearhouse in Dubai. Paul has made Auckland his home, but as an avid adventurer, he loves to travel in his spare time. Paul has been in overdrive since joining, working on learning the ins and outs of LED screens and video systems to get up to speed with the demands of HDAV’s work. “I get a real thrill on putting on an amazing event,” says Paul. “I strive to do that every time, even for the smallest gig”.
Nat was studying for a Bachelor of Performing and Screen Arts, majoring in Production Design and Management. But he couldn’t resist the allure of the real world and made the switch to working at HDAV full-time. Nat is an accomplished Senior Technician, proficient in all aspects of AV, including Audio, Lighting, Video, LED and Editing. “I love travelling the country or overseas, putting on awesome AV events that clients and the audience love,” says Nat. “Best job in the world!”.
