Mass started out in the audio visual industry back in the year 1999 when he was 20 after several years working in the retail industry. He started out in sales for 6 months before moving into technical where he worked for a further 3 years helping turn the department into a more profitable division than the sales department along with the help of his brother Don. Mass then decided to take the plunge and leave that company and startup Project Audio Visual in 2003 along with his brother Don and Steve Hudson whom he’d become friends with after Steve supplied AV hire for his old employers for many years. Mass’s dream, when he was at school, was to join the RAF when he left and eventually move on to being a commercial pilot but due to some bad advice, the route that his life has taken has not been all bad! He now just sticks to flying small planes in his spare time
