When your word is on the line,
SO IS OURS.

Chad Allen

Group Advisor
“The Collaborator”

Have you met Chad? For over 15 years, I ran a local Las Vegas integration firm that specialized in mid-large size programming jobs and alarms. During my time, I developed and enhanced a formula that combines knowledge and experience to produce the best possible outcomes for our clients in four key service areas: design, documentation, programming, and project management. When it comes to programming, let’s just say I know enough to be dangerous.

My team members, friends, and family would describe me as meticulous. I take pride in leadership and exceeding expectations. When I’m not at Pulse Group, I am working my way through the ranks of kickboxing and jiu jitsu, playing ball, or spending time with my family and friends. My wife and I have three amazing daughters and a dog named Dermot Mulroney.

Personal Brand: My strengths include a combination of strong leadership and enjoyment. I have mastered the skills of driving a team, staying focused, maintaining even temperament, and creating empowering experiences. I lead by example, critically think through important decisions, and deliver reliability.

 

Daniel Grothman

Group Advisor
“The Gifted”

Growing up, there was one rule in my house that differed from most. “Daniel is not allowed to take apart electronic devices in the house!” This stemmed from my innate interest in how things worked. Unfortunately my ability to dismantle far exceeded my ability to re-construct. However, my quest to explore the operation of things never ceased, and as I grew so did my ability to fix and creatively repair. The curiosities of my youth eventually lead me into the world of programming and a whole new frontier where construction and deconstruction happens without tools you find in a garage but instead in the realm of binary 1’s and 0’s. Along the way I have found other areas of life that fulfill and motivate me, like playing and watching soccer, hiking, reading and enjoying board games. By far the most important to me being my amazing wife, and three kids. They continually lead me on new adventures into areas of life I have never explored, while also giving me a foundation of love that allows me to make mistakes along the way.

Personal Brand: I am a future focused software engineer with a passion for efficiency, discipleship and encouragement.

David Campbell

Group Advisor
“The Rebel”

How’s it going? I’m Dave. I am a documenting expert, music lover, and giant sports nut. I’ve spent the better part of my career in a wide range of professions from construction to real estate but have found a true passion for the audio/visual industry. Now I get to pass all of my expertise along to our Pulse Group members to help them grow their businesses.

When I’m not working, I am spending time with my lady, my family, and my friends. There is also a good chance that I am playing video games, playing basketball or golf. Yes – I do go to Rebel basketball games and spend as much time outdoors as possible.

Troublesome clients usually end up frozen in carbonate.

Personal Brand: I am team-driven and inspired by the leadership and talent I surround myself with. My work ethic is rooted in trust and dedication which allows me to communicate honestly and effectively.

Jason Clift

Group Advisor
“The Prodigy”

How’s it going? I’m Jason. I am a Group Advisor here with Pulse Group. I specialize in programming, project management and training. I have been programming since the Visual Basic days; my first ever computer was a HP 386.

Most of my programming has been self-taught and ranges from C++ to LUA with a heavy specialization in PHP and HTML, with a minor dip into relay chat (but we won’t go there.) I am currently wrapping up my Crestron Certification Exam – so go me!

I love doing computer gaming and archery – and, yes, I can outshoot any other Group Advisor here… (Yes, that’s a challenge). There 104 words or less. Done!

Personal Brand: I have spent years cultivating my programming knowledge and have put extreme emphasis on making sure my reputation speaks for itself. When I am programming, clients can rest assured that I will respect timelines, understand their systems, always communicate respectfully, and provide a solid foundation for upgrades and changes to ensure ultimate success.

 

Lisa Marie Vasquez

Group Advisor
“The Drill Sergeant

What is up! I am Lisa Marie. I am a born driver (rightfully earning me the alias of drill sergeant). My background is not in the automation industry but I have learned enough from my time with the Pulse Group to understand it conversationally! I was on the road to obtaining my PhD in Criminal Justice when I fell in love with business and the world of entrepreneurism. I believe in creating a business stratosphere (strategy + atmosphere) where teams play at the highest level because of their foundational strength and unbreakable purpose. I am passionate about branding companies from the inside out. It is only after a team is aligned that their true brand identity can be created and executed (just ask the guys about this process). When I am not working….wait, I am usually always working. Well, even while I am working I am busy loving and living life to the fullest with my man, my family, and my adorable puppy – Dermot Mulroney aka Dylan McDermot.

Personal Brand: I focus my professional life around my strengths: discipline, design, and drive. I focus my time and energy into making every experience count. I bridge the gap between structure and creativity allowing for truly balanced products, services, or engagement.

Michael Theil

Group Advisor
“The Techie

Thanks for taking the time to read about me! I’m Mike. The thing about me is that I like solving puzzles. From the beginning, I chose this profession because things either worked or they did not; a task was complete or there was more to do. I always wanted to understand and know why things operated the way they did internally. I take the question out and replace it with reason and logic. I love to line up all of the details and piece each part together. Each project that I work on is like a puzzle and it’s my job to be able to say that ‘I know it works’, rather than ‘I hope it works’.

Personal Brand: As a programmer, I strive to take a vision that others dream about, and through organized effort and expertise, transform it into a deliverable product.

Tyler Taitano

Group Advisor
“The Doodler

Sup, I’m Tyler. I am a go with the flow kind of guy, but in a swim with the current kind of way. You know all those ads that pop up on your Instagram or Facebook feed that you don’t really want to see but sometimes get suckered into clicking on anyway? I’m the guy that makes those, among a variety of other things. And I love it. Graphic design has given me an outlet to express my creative passion and dive into industries I’ve never even dreamed of. There is something about taking an idea or a product and bringing it to life through art that I can’t get away from. I find myself constantly thinking of new ways to thin the strokes between creativity, business and technology. It’s been eight years since I stumbled upon one of my dad’s old torn up Photoshop Elements book and opened up the path to my career. They always say enjoy what you do, I think I nailed that one.

Personal Brand: I strive to bring the ideas that I come across to life with dynamic artistic execution and to its fullest potential because there is something to be said about even the smallest doodle in a notebook.

Jake Fahrbach

Group Advisor
“The Black Hat

Hi, I’m Jake. I want to live in a world filled with innovative businesses, books that come bundled with organic Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee, and kickstarters that actually deliver what they promise.

As a programmer with over 10 years of experience, I’ve worked internationally with Google, Warner Brothers, USC, UCLA (and more) designing, developing, and deploying basic conference room systems, production event spaces, enterprise level building management systems, and everything inbetween.

When I’m not programming or working on R&D, you can find me tinkering with electronics, visiting comedy clubs with my buddies, or helping my mom remove the thirty-seven toolbars on her browser so she can get back on to facebook.

Personal Brand: I have a strong passion for learning and I am always striving to acquire new skills and to improve the workflow and procedures of myself and those I work with. I believe that skill and ability need to be paired with humility and respect to prevent complacency.

Igor Maydanik

Group Advisor
“The Best Thing to Ever Happen to Pulse Group – aka The Double Checker

Yo. My names Igor, and if there’s one thing I’m good at doing, it’s living up to the thing in italics below my name. I’m young, ambitious, and very capable, and above all I love a good challenge. Not in the half-assed resume sort of way either, I mean I go out of my way to push myself and take on things way above my weight class. Right now I go to UNLV, double majoring in Software Engineering and Finance, and I plan to eventually start my own little business which I’ll use as a platform to take on the world, Ol’ Musky style. I absolutely love learning, about everything, and am always soaking up experiences that I have with business strategy, brand development, programming, and all of the little interests I have on the side which include everything from history to chemistry to physics. My goal is to master every single possible thing there is to master in the universe, and although I know I’ll never actually reach that goal, that’s no reason not to try.

Personal Brand: I don’t know what the answer to life is, but loyalty, drive, awareness, and passion seem to be a pretty good foundation to start building from, and I make those traits crucial to my fundamental being. I love to pick the decision that makes for the better story, and always strive to creatively funnel my millennial angst into worthwhile experiences.

 

Damon Ruemmele

Group Advisor
“The Eagle Eye

Greetings all! My name is Damon and if I had to choose just one quality that most defined me it would be my passion for people. I’ve been a firefighter for 23 years but have done many things while holding that full-time career. I’ve worked retail, a ski shop, driven limos, and went through bartending school. I didn’t realize it in the moment but all of those things have one crucial thing in common that allowed me to thrive in each endeavor. Customer service! I have an OCD-ish quality that drives me to approach a task as if I were the customer. I take a tremendous amount of pride in my “brand” and it’s words like engaged, humble, sincere, and meticulous that support it. My role with Pulse Group allows me to draw on skills that will help us deliver a product that has a high attention to detail in the user interface coupled with a positive, professional interaction with all involved during integration.

Personal Brand: People and relationships matter to me and not just in a lip service way. By investing in people I feel like I’ve accomplished some great things both professionally and personally. I look forward to applying that same passion with each client we work with. On a more personal note, I too enjoy archery. So Jasons’ challenge is accepted!

 

Ian Richter

Group Advisor
“The Musician

Heya folks, my name is Ian, and for the last ten years, I’ve been bouncing back and forth between the worlds of art and technology, trying to make them play nice together. As a musician, I’ve performed electro-acoustic music ranging from simple tape tracks to live improvisation with machine learning. As a software developer, I’ve worked on the control of audio/video systems in boardrooms, theaters, and luxury superyachts. In my mind, software development is like any other tool in a creator’s toolbox: for certain tasks, it is the cleanest, most elegant solution, while for others it is better to choose another approach (which can easily be a human solution as a piece of hardware). As a Group Advisor, my first responsibility is to solve the client’s problem, using all of the tools at my disposal.

Personal Brand: I believe that all decisions are, on some level, aesthetic ones. Before we can say that a thing is beautiful, or true, or useful, we must first choose what properties we are going to value. This is just as true of software development as it is of art. What that means in a professional context is that step one of any project is to make sure that everyone involved has a working understanding of each others’ values. Only then can we work together to solve problems for each other.

 

Andy Uribe

Group Advisor
Where were we?

Hello! It's me, Andy. I'm a creative and aspiring programmer who is obsessively fascinated with technology and innovation. At the age of 6, I managed to build my own portable fan from scratch, and yes, it was functional, blowing, and my best friend all summer long. As a kid, I was always getting caught dismantling my father's electronics and getting into all sorts of mischief, but ultimately, that is exactly the kind of thinking that landed me where I am today- in a profession, I genuinely love and can excel at continuously. Before landing here with these fine people, I worked in management at a retail store. Like any job, it has it's good and bad, but it was ultimately time to transition into the field I am now in. My mind is constantly running at 100mph, and the great thing about computer programming is that there are no limitations on what you can create. And like the energizer bunny, I keep going and going. As a software developer skies the limit when it comes to creativeness and innovation. Your critical thinking skills are maximized, which always allows for self-improvement and growth.

Personal Brand: I focus on maintaining a growth mindset. I can challenge myself to learn anything. When I'm frustrated, I persevere, and when I fail, I learn. If you succeed, I am inspired, and my efforts and attitude determine my abilities.

 

Dustin Liu

Group Advisor
“The Self-Starter

Hello All, my name is Dustin. I have worked in a variety of tech-related jobs, but the versatility of the AV industry has resonated with me the most. The mix of getting hands-on experience, working onsite, and constantly seeing something new pushes and challenges me. Knowing that the potential of our work is only limited by our vision keeps me going. My time with Pulse Group has allowed me to excel across several disciplines such as Programming, Commissioning, Project Management, Documentation, and Client Management. I am goal-oriented and believe that with proper planning we can find a solution for all our client’s needs. On my time off, I can be found outdoors, playing sports, or simply enjoying a movie. But I am most happy when creating wonderful memories with friends and family.

Personal Brand: Discipline is key, no matter if I am crawling or running. What matters is that I am continually progressing towards my goals and improving the lives of everyone around me.

 

Kevin Nance

Group Advisor
“The Quick Study”

Hey, I’m Kevin! I call myself the team’s “Quick Study” because I’m always ready to help solve any problem you throw at me (while also throwing back some lime flavored sparkling water—like a real man). As a graduate from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a bachelor’s in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics, you can count on me to do what it takes to get the job done. Though my academic background is in C.S., my skills range widely from playing the guitar to car maintenance to serving up a pretty mean game of ping pong. When I’m not programming with Pulse Group, you’ll find me hitting up the rock climbing gym or cruising the river on my kayak.

Personal Brand: I have a passion for problem solving, and I take pride in my dependability, drive, and determination to bring the best solutions to our clients.

 

Sage Koebcke

Group Advisor
“Ging-and-Juice”

Hi, I’m Sage. I am a student, crafter, and reader! As I began to look for work, Pulse Group took me in and let me explore the field of Social Media. I have been doing social media for Pulse for over a year now and have started freelancing because I love it! I am skilled in editing, content creation, and design but also excel in organizational and administrative support. I am most well known for my current 5.1 GPA with three semesters yet to go!

Personal Brand: I live my life aiming to constantly evolve both as a person and as a professional. Stagnancy is no place for me.
