After years of working in television, media, and church production, we started Lambda Audio Visual. We specifically felt like we could offer a new way of looking at church systems. We simply want to offer quality products, with great training, and great local support.
We noticed that small and medium size churches, our primary clientele, don’t typically have a large tech staff and sometimes no tech staff at all.They need someone to depend on to keep their systems up to date and running well. We also noticed how much the corporate industry is changing in work spaces. We feel like we can offer solutions that are easy to use for everyone, and use more current and exciting technology than most other groups can offer. We have a great design team to come up with creative solutions to meet our clients specific needs. With that said, we felt like we could offer great products and training on a more personal, individualized level to churches and corporate offices, so Lambda was born!
How We Got Our Name
At this point, you might be asking, "So, why are you called Lambda?" The answer to this has evolved since the conception of the company. Elizabeth’s Dad suggested we use Lambda because it is the Greek letter for wavelength, thus relating it to the light and sound waves we work with. This name evolved later on when we were working on new t-shirts for the company. Elizabeth suggested we add a lamb and the word duh to help people learn the name since no one seemed to be able to pronounce the Greek letter.The logo caught on like wildfire when we first introduced it and here we are today with little lambs on everything and even a little white porcelain lamb mascot affectionately named Duh.
We offer a lot of different services at Lambda, but the heart of our company is to provide excellence in service and support through our knowledge of Audio Visual technology. We want to meet, as well as exceed, the needs and solutions we provide to our customers. We want to give you a personal experience that you won't receive from other companies; providing support and assurance that your best is our goal. When we started Lambda I already knew I wanted to bring my clients something new. I like to be as prepared as possible every day to do my job.Some days it doesn’t work out as we are not perfect, but this is something that is very important to me.I love to plan ahead, and to think through scenarios of how I can work efficiently and provide the best.Many of our articles lean this way in reading manuals, labeling, learning all of what your equipment can do.I love to be on the side of figuring out solutions and we want to give you the tools to help you succeed! These are our goals and our mission here at Lambda Audio Visual!
The Lambda Team
Ryan ~ Owner, CEO
I have been doing AV since I was about 3! I can't imagine life without it. First,I was obsessed with headphones as a kid. Then my Dad’s best friend at the time taught me how to turn their work servers on and off. Later at the age of about 8, my Dad had me helping check the mics at church on Sundays.In high school, I got into video through our high school video program KDET-TV and Ryan Cameron, my teacher, really inspired me to take my gifts and run with them.In college, I went to southern Illinois university and worked with our PBS station WSIU-TV editing and directing news with my three Teachers, Steve North, Mark Wetstein, and Roger Suski, (Go Salukis!) all who gave me amazing chances to learn and grow in the industry.Outside of TV and Audio Visual, I love motorsports.I have a heavily modified Nissan frontier I take on trails and rock crawl. I am also working on engine swapping a 1984 VW GTI to track race.I love camping and visiting the ocean with my wonderful wife of 9 years, Elizabeth, and spending time with our cuddly dog and ball of energy, Darcy the Ridiculous Dog.
Elizabeth ~ Owner, Accounting, HR
Hello! I am a licensed CPA and have applied my finance and accounting skills in private industry for the better part of a decade. I advise on Lambda’s overall strategy, make sure the numbers are correct, and try to ensure we are utilizing and taking care of our employees and contractors. I like reading, working out, eating delicious food, and learning about myself and others. If I’m not doing those things or working, I’m probably hanging out with Ryan or snuggled up somewhere with 35lbs of love in dog form, aka, Darcy
Trevor ~ Shop Manager, SMAART
I’m a Colorado native that has spent much of my life involved with the local church and ministry, but Audio Visual was something I picked up later. We say in Colorado you aren’t more than 3 degrees separated from a Fisk involved with serving a small business or ministry. I have always been interested in AV but for me it became a way for me to serve. Every church I have been at over the years I have looked for ways to plug in and tech was usually one of the ways I could do that. For about 3 years I toured with Glen Eyrie youth camps and I got used to arriving at churches all across the country with not much time available to setup and never the ideal equipment, but still making things work. Much of my relationship with Ryan leading up to Lambda was formed while volunteering through a local community theatre group. I coordinated all of the sound tech needs from making mic assignment sheets to equipment maintenance, teaching actors proper mic technique and actually running the tech side of the show. I have grown my skills more and more seeking out training through working with industry peers and attending classes like rational acoustics smart training and others. When I'm not working for Lambda I am either working part time at my local church as our lead audio engineer on weekends, screaming my head off at the Colorado Rockies, or spending time with my lovely wife, Leah.
Jewell ~ Administrative Assistant
I am a Colorado native and love being outdoors, camping and gardening. Since I was little I have loved writing! I wrote stories all the time and even put together literary newsletters for my friends. I love to cook for whoever is around! I also enjoy drawing and painting! (Check out the cow in our fun fact about cows and sound). In high school, I started my first job at a Retreat and Conference Center. I loved working there for five years and worked my way up to a Lead Cook, to a General Manager. From there, I started my own business as a Personal Assistant and Home Caretaker. It felt like a natural step to use my writing, artistic skills, and my business knowledge to begin work for Lambda. Though I am fairly new to the Audio Visual world, I love it! I love learning about the amazing tech we have and how it works, even down to the wiring. I've known Trevor since I was born, Elizabeth since I was about 9, and I accepted Ryan when he stole my friend away! ;) So, sometimes working for Lambda is more like a crazy family reunion.
