As a child, Lloyd loved to tinker, take toys apart, and put them back together again, especially if they were electronic. He deconstructed everything from the TV remote to the garage door opener, much to his parents’ bemusement. Combined with a love of music, this led naturally to an interest in audiovisual technology. Lloyd’s first job was managing AV at PG&E, where he encountered a broadcast studio for the first time. Broadcast combines all of Lloyd’s interests: media, AV, and teamwork. He brings this specialty to TEECOM’s AV team, where he’s excited to join high-end network engineers alongside AV people he’s known for years.
A spate of snowfall recently brought Lloyd back to an early interest: snowboarding. Wanting to hone his rusty skills, he took a lesson. Student groups were split up by level, and Lloyd’s skillset put him alone at the top. For the price of a group class he got a private lesson, with front-of-the-line lift privileges to boot. And, his snowboarding skills went up a notch! It was nearly a perfect day for Lloyd, who loves learning and pushing his personal bounds.
Sky’s The Limit
Lloyd got interested in radio-controlled toys in the sixth grade, and graduated from RC cars to planes and helicopters. When drones came along, he picked up the hobby quickly because it combined his interest in RC with videography. He was probably one of the first people to fly a DSLR camera. These days he owns a variety of drones for a variety of functions, including construction survey, action sports, and landscape photography.
Hit the Gravel
A love of the outdoors, competition, and fitness draw Lloyd to bicycling. He started with mountain biking in the ‘90s, then road biking, and eventually amateur bicycle racing. His interest has evolved to gravel cycling, adventuring through old forestry roads and miner’s paths. Even better, it’s an equipment-intensive sport, requiring specialized tires and a bike with more tire clearance and disc brakes.
