AVIXA’s Narin Nara Named to SCN’s Annual List of Young AV Professionals
As reported by Systems Contractor News, AVIXA’s Narin Nara has been named one of SCN’s The Nine,
an annual recognition of young innovators in the audiovisual industry. With so much talent in the field, choosing just nine recipients for this distinction is always difficult. But SCN Content Director Megan Dutta points out this year’s field shares more than just technical and creative skills.
“Many of these new leaders are passionate advocates of diversity and inclusion, often due to having to personally overcome equality issues in the workplace,” said Dutta.
As a digital media producer for AVIXA, Narin’s name may not be known to some but his work is instantly recognizable as he’s responsible for much of the association’s video and social media content. Nara’s daily focus is on enhancing the company’s content strategy, a mission he’s prepared for most of his life.
“I’ve always had a fascination for audiovisual tech and learned as much as I could about video production and broadcasting in high school and into college,” remarked Nara.
After accepting a role at AVIXA (then InfoComm International) in 2011, Narin worked diligently to hone his content and video development skills and now leads a team of digital media specialists.
“I engrained myself in the AV world and learned as much as I could about this awesome industry—learning and working until I evolved into a video production-centric position,” he recalled. “Video production has always been something I’ve done for fun, and the fact that it’s something I get to do for work is super awesome. I truly enjoy collaborating with great minds that help bring our concepts to life.”
Narin confessed to SCN he’s a self-described “100-level introvert” with a goal to be as good in front of the camera as he is behind it. “Growing up, I struggled with communicating effectively as English was my second language, and that carried into my early professional years,” he said. Joining Toastmasters went a long way in improving his public speaking skills, giving him the confidence to present at major conferences and events.Narin has much to say on AV, social media, and using a company’s brand effectively.
