4-Guy-Pratola

Guy Pratola

Senior Systems Designer

Guy’s love for music started when he was 5 and was given an alarm clock

with built-in cassette. From that day forward the search for better sound has continued. He went through many stereo systems for the next 20 years until finally deciding that he might as well become part of the Audio/Video world. What better career path is there, then one you are so passionate about as a hobby. Ever since that day he has never looked back and has been helping clients find exactly what they are looking for in the confusing world of A/V. Working here at PAC is just another natural fit, as the owner and all of the staff members here at PAC are also passionate about the quality of their work and strive to exceed the expectation of every client they install a system for, with much success I might add. (by the way: that clock radio still works just like the day he got it all these years later)
