Clay Hutson is an entrepreneur that started up his own business in the music industry. Hutson’s company provides musicians and others with excellent live show services and sound engineering. He majored in theatre design in college and quickly found work afterwards as an audio engineer. He eventually became a project manager and realized that he could offer people more if he had his own company. Hutson has worked with the likes of Kid Rock, Guns’n’Roses, Garbage, and Pink and continues to help musicians make their stage shows superb.
In 2005, Clay Hutson traveled with the “Bleed Like Me” tour, which was with the band Garbage. He served as a monitor engineer during the tour, which took place on three continents. Hutson also worked with Billy Graham during one of his tours and also worked on the “Honda Civic Tour.“ He is able to turn his ideas in realities by having a deep understanding of the industry he works in. Computers have always given him a helping hand as he is able to more clearly see a design idea before implementing it on stage.
Clay Hutson does his best to pay close attention to every single detail of what is needed for a live show and always works hard to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch. Instead of doing the bare minimum, he works extra hours to make sure that all of his crew knows what they are doing. His reputation has been built on the quality services he has offered and that he continues to offer. As a man who is aware of the dangers of not doing everything correctly in the music industry, he always double and triple checks his work.
In the music industry, there are many different new technologies that are always being introduced. Clay Hutson always stays on top of these technologies in order to better serve his clients. He has taken an interest, of late, in mobile lighting for its ability to keep everything lit up well while also being easier to move around. At the same time, Hutson is very aware of overdoing it with technology and believes that some of the best shows come from the creative minds of the musicians who are running them.
When it comes to personal augmentation, the city of Atlanta in Georgia has Dr. Mark McKenna. The Tulane Medical University alumnus is revolutionising the medical field as we know it through his latest idea, the OVME services, pronounced “of me”. Dr. Mark McKenna seeks to unite the very best of technology with the science of aesthetics. Asked on how he plans to do it, Mark McKenna says that they will utilise the internet to build a network of peers that can always be on call even to private residences if need be, comparing its working to that of Uber and Airbnb. Always an entrepreneur, Dr. Mark McKenna started investing while in real estate while in medical school. After graduating in 1999, he joined his Father’s practice in New Orleans, Louisiana. He continued to invest in real estate and was doing well when Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005 and he lost millions overnight. Unfazed, he took advantage of the dipped real estate prices and built some capital and eventually moved to Atlanta in 2007. There he took full advantage of the internet marketing and founded an aesthetics and wellness practice called ShapeMed where despite the competition, the business thrived. With revenue of nearly 4 million dollars, ShapeMed was a success before Dr. Mark McKenna decided to sell it to a more prominent company, Lifetime Fitness in April 2014. Mark then worked at Lifetime Fitness for a year before taking a one and half year hiatus to concentrate on his family. After that, Dr Mark McKenna came back with OVME, which he believes is going to increase customer satisfaction and boost their confidence. The clientele will be able to request from an extensive range of services and professionals what they feel works best for them and is tailored to their tastes. He sees this as a way of rebuilding people and boosting their confidence which he says is a way of saying thank you to the community that has been instrumental for him reaching his current level. Part of the proceeds from OVME will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation as part of giving back to the society.
