Glyn joined us in June 2016. He's the first point of contact for technical advice and support.
What’s a typical day in your current role at TSS?
Day to day I deal with all incoming general enquiries and the processing of processing quotes, orders and repairs for customers and colleagues.
I also keep an eye on the webshop.
What’s your favourite part of your job?
You never know who’s going to ring up and what they want to try and do!
What did you do before joining TSS?
Before joining TSS I spent 5 years working as a Theatre Technician in schools, overseeing technical support for everything from meeting rooms to live concerts and theatrical productions.
Why/how did you get into the industry?
I have always had an interest in music, having played the keyboard when I was younger, which snowballed into taking Music as a subject at school, then getting the opportunity to get into Music Technology at College. From there I studied Music Technology with some video modules at University where live events took my interest. After an eventful placement year learning all about lighting I’ve been a bit of an AV jack-of-all-trades ever since.
What are your favourite/most interesting/most unusual gigs/jobs you’ve done in the past?
My most memorable event was when I was part of a surprise concert finale where I had to edit and sync videos of students singing to their own recording of the song ‘Sing’. This was then played to the audience and the theatre lighting was automated to come on half way through the video for the live student orchestra to take over the soundtrack and create a great finale, which then had to be repeated by demand of the audience.
What do you do in your spare time?
If I can get away with it, absolutely nothing, although I am often out and about on weekends playing Lacrosse or finding new and interesting places to walk my dog.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
If you’re going to do something, it’s worth doing it right.
Who would you most like to be stranded on a desert island with?
Probably not the most common answer to this question, but I’d take my other half.
