I have always loved audio. Probably more than anyone should. One of my fondest childhood memories was when my parents bought me a Casio keyboard. While most would have used it to learn piano, I was fascinated with its ability to record audio. I also enjoyed my walk-man and amassed a large collection of cassette tapes of my favorite bands. I would pretend to be Casey Kasem doing the weekly top 40.
My formal training began in the valley of the sun. From 1998-2000 I attended the Phoenix First Pastor’s College. The church had a weekly attendance of 15,000 people and one of the best video production ministries in the world. I learned so much from that experience that I still use over 14 years later.
I continued to work for church ministries until 2006. For the next few years I worked as a freelancer and in 2010 I decided that I wanted secular video training. I joined the Teleproduction class at York Technical College in Rock Hill, SC. I graduated with honors in 2012 with a dual degree in Teleproduction and General Technology. I worked briefly at WCCB in their master control department. I have worked in media ministries for many years but in 2012 I officially went out on my own and started Rich Wheeler Productions of Charlotte, NC.
In October of 2017 I moved to Richmond Hill, GA after spending 17 years in Charlotte While in Charlotte in addition to my business I was a volunteer at Myers Park Baptist Church. I ran a system with three robotic cameras and graphics to web stream our services. I also helped with sound in our fellowship hall. This included a conference with the acclaimed theologian, Barbara Brown Taylor.
Since moving to Savannah, I have volunteered at First Baptist of Savannah by editing the weekly service and sharing it on their podcast and WRUU radio broadcast. In my spare time I enjoy cooking and watching Nascar races. I am avid Apple enthusiast. I use an Apple MacBook Pro for all my work, I have a regular iPad, and iPad min, and iPhone, and iPod, an Apple Watch, and an Apple TV. If I was not afraid of needles the Apple logo would appear tattooed on my body!
Not that you know a little more about me, give me a call or send me an email so we can discuss your video or audio needs. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
