While earning my Bachelor's Degree from Centenary College, I was working for a residential low−voltage technology company near my school. In 2009, after graduating with my Master's Degree in English Literature, I began to look for a more challenging position.
I started going to work with my father, Chris Kopin, who works at Kramer as their VP of Technology, when I was just 16 years old. After receiving my degree in Electrical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology, I was offered a full−time position at Kramer; the company I grew up at.
I have always worked in the service industry, holding customer service−oriented positions in hospitality, retail, and commercial sectors. When I lived in Grass Valley, California, a job posting for a sales representative with Kramer presented opportunities to further develop my customer service skills, strive to achieve sales goals, and learn more about some of the things I love most; gadgets, components, and other types of electronics.
When I was a teen, I started making reel−to−reel recordings of my HS Band and Symphony performances. I quickly found the whole concept of experimenting with microphones, mixers, wires & techniques to achieve quality recordings a great adventure.
After serving in the US Army in Vietnam I got a job with an AV dealer repairing movie projectors and record players. That led to designing and installing AV systems for large corporations throughout the New York metropolitan area.
