Event & Media Technologies has come a long way since its inception. Established and developed by life-long friends Aaron Vetter and Spencer Russell in 2012 – the company has grown to quickly show a very promising future.

A firm dedication to customer service and an undying drive to provide the best possible product has separated Event & Media Technologies from its competition.

This level of persistence is a cornerstone trait of the business and will continue to be a driving force towards unparalleled client satisfaction. Without further ado – lets meet the team.

 Spencer Russell
Owner

In his early years, Spencer was a dedicated musician with aspirations of a career in performance and training. However, as the time passed he found a passion for studio recording and engineering. Knowing this would be an extremely difficult career path – Spencer turned his professional efforts towards live event audio, video, and lighting production. Together with life-long friend and cohort Aaron Vetter, they decided to pursue a joint business venture and as such, Event & Media Technologies was born.

 Aaron Vetter
Owner

Aaron discovered a love for music at a young age. Through musical lessons and playing bass guitar in various bands, this passion evolved into an interest in audio engineering. He received his Associates in Audio Engineering and Bachelors in Music Business from Full Sail University.  After returning home to northern Virginia, Aaron spent two years as a warehouse manager for a premier lighting company and then decided to join the local freelance community. After spending two years in this capacity, Aaron and his business partner Spencer co-founded Event & Media Technologies. His responsibilities now include financial planning & management, establishing business relationships and sales.

Jonah began his lifelong love with this industry at George Mason University where he majored in Technical Theater. He was an avid employee of the GMU Event Production team which ran AV for all in-house productions. Eventually becoming lead, he parlayed those skills into sales at GC Pro, an AV install based team.
