Richard Coley

Project Manager, TAD Associates
United States
Rich has grown a fascination with audio into a career as a loudspeaker and systems designer, finally expanding into TAD project management. Rich graduated from University of North Carolina's School of the Arts, with a degree in Theatrical Sound Design and Audio Engineering. His studies gave him a 360° understanding of audio systems engineering, audio electronics, and acoustical design. Rich even studied psychoacoustics: the psychological responses to sound. This sparked an interest in connecting people to their sensory environment, which has inspired Rich throughout his career. For over 10 years, Rich has built an impressive career in the live theatre, film and broadcast world. He first began as a designer for a loudspeaker design and manufacturing company. Then he moved into AV systems engineering for a renowned live performance venue in NYC. He sharpened his skills while a designer at a world-class acoustical and technology consulting firm. Finally, he expanded his skillset while an engineer then project manager at an international engineering firm. Rich's experiences have culminated into a well- rounded mastery of AV integration. He applies this knowledge while managing some of TAD's most complex projects. His fascination with audio is still strong, as Rich continues to work on live broadcast events and loudspeaker designs on the side. He plays music and explores jazz clubs in NYC to remain immersed in sound.
