Curtis was born and raised in the North Okanagan and grew up spending summers on Shuswap Lake.

In the early 2000’s, Curtis combined a passion for boating with his career in Car Audio and set out to specialize in Marine Audio and Electronics. Collaborating with clients to create custom audio systems to enhance their experience with their water toys is something that truly made work fun for Curtis. Curtis has had some incredible opportunities over the years to consult with marine manufacturers, develop prototypes, customize systems in new boats, and restore + modernize electrical systems in vintage boats.

In his time off, you will find Curtis on the lake with family and friends, enjoying good tunes and dreaming up the next thing.
