My name is Morgan Irwin and at the time of writing this postsI had just reached writing the 100th post for Mirror Edge Networks. So for those of you that I have not yet met, this is a little more about me.
(Please note that I have changed the publish date, to start the year off with this post)

Morgan Irwin on site in Franschhoek

This is me working hard on site at our current cinema build (at the time of writing this post) just over two weeks into the project.
Hard to believe (?) but depending on the day of the week, you may find me wearing a suit and tie! On this project I was on site for 3 weeks straight, so the most suitable on site clothing was in order.

For you to get to know me a little better, I will describe a few things about me:
I’ve spent the last 10 years working in the Audio Video industry. A summary of this time is as follows:

  • Cape Town Audio Visual – Technical Installations
    (Part Time: 2004)
    Full time: December 2005 to June 2007
  • Bang & Olufsen Cape Town – Sales Executive
    July 2007 to October 2010
  • True Sound Acoustics – Project Manager & Sales Cape Town
    November 2010 to November 2011
  • ad notam South Africa – Managing Director
    January 2012 to Present
  • Mirror Edge Networks – Managing Director
    March 2012 to Present

I am most impressed by professional workmanship, the simplest Audio Video systems can be installed professionally and impress me.
Luckily I have been able to grow in knowledge and skills through the showcasing of installations by colleagues all over the world through a community called LiveInstall.

For the purpose of being fair to my colleagues I am not going to go into what is my outright favourite product or piece of equipment, but I do have a few that I enjoy working with.
In no particular order they are:

  • ad notam Mirror Televisions
  • Artcoustic Speakers
  • Bang & Olufsen
  • Crestron
  • CYP Video Distribution systems
  • Linn HiFi
  • Loewe Televisions
  • ODE Floating furniture.

There are a few products that I am very excited to be working with and learning more about in 2015. (Mainly due to a recent project we have been working on)
They are:

  • Bang & Olufsen
  • Barco
  • Trinnov
  • Wisdom Audio

I am not only interested in Audio Video equipment. I try my best to keep up to date with what is happening in the motoring world, albeit for a few brands in particular.

There is no denying that I am a BMW fan, I have a 1 Series which suits my current needs perfectly.
That doesn’t stop me visiting my friends at Aston Martin and McLaren Cape Town. These two British companies craft some of the most stunning cars available, I would like to extend my thanks to Andrew and Jonathan for always giving me the inside info and keeping me up to date with the latest happenings from these great companies.

Outside the high quality tech and fancy cars I am passionate about kids and doing my bit to help the future generation with life skills training.
I am the Troop Scouter at First Pinelands Scout Troop in Cape Town.
This offers me a great opportunity to interact with children (boys and girls) and help them make the best life choices that they can.
