Tim perez, ctS-D, Senior consultant

Tim found music early in life, studying piano and guitar into his adolescence. The predictable, grandiose visions of a career in music probably have not faded over the years (he has a mind like a steel trap) but have rather been overlaid with other, related pursuits. First, a more technical interest in sound emerged, leading him into several years of live sound production during high school, mixing for school presentations, pep rallies, and theatrical productions. He then immersed himself in a collaborative program in audio engineering at the University of Miami, finding there an inspiring balance of science and art and culminating in a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in Audio. Graduate studies in architectural acoustics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute followed, focusing on computational methods of simulating the human auditory system. His graduate work was presented at the Acoustical Society of America. 

As he moves though his world, he snaps up details and observations at an impressive rate, somehow keeping all of them handy and ready for synthesis. As a result, he can jump easily between architectural acoustics and AV systems design while maintaining a seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture.
