About Lionel Felix
Raised in NYC, Santa Fe and Los Angeles. Techie and side-hustle since I got my first Commodore 64. Went to school for film and ended up in IT. Worked as an IT helpdesk, manager, director and VP for Dell, Motorola, frogdesign, Sony Pictures and Y&R. Left IT for AV as a lark and suddenly we had employees and a warehouse! I’m marrying our CFO in December 2019, dad to two big dogs and constantly playing with blinky things in my spare time
