"I like to travel as much as I can, and it’s a goal of mine to see as much of the world as I possibly can. This picture was taken back in November of last year at one of my most favorite places I’ve ever had the opportunity to travel to - Brimstone Hill Fortress on St. Kitts island in the Caribbean."
Hey Cam, so what all do you do for Media Creek?
I do a little bit of everything! I’ve been with Media Creek (before it was even called Media Creek) since 2014, so I’ve worn several different hats over the years. I provide a lot of support for our EmpireStreaming and Abovecast brands, as well as support for Live365. I work one on one with many of our customers to take care of any needs they might have, including taking care of initial deployments for many of our larger/terrestrial clients as well. I’ve done everything from sales, billing, deploying and maintaining mobile apps for our clients, and more. I also do a lot of behind the scenes work on some of our internal systems and infrastructure. I’ve truly been a jack of all trades around here and I love every minute of it.
In your opinion, what's the best part about working for Media Creek?
I would have to say that working with such an incredible team who are truly experts in this field has been incredibly rewarding. I’m privileged to work alongside the best people in the industry where I get to learn something new every single day.
I know it's a tough question, but if you had to pick just ONE music genre to listen to for the rest of your life, what would that be?
This IS a tough question. I’ve always gravitated towards Classic Rock. What is typically classified as “Classic Rock” does seem to change as the years go by, but the 70's and 80's era of rock is generally what I lean towards. And even though you did say just one genre, a very close second place would have to go to Progressive Metal.
Who is your all-time favorite band/artist?
It’s so hard to answer this with just one artist! My “favorite” does tend to change from time to time. I think a band that I would say is a favorite, and one that I can always listen to without getting tired of them would have to be Rush. On the Progressive side of things, I’m also a huge fan of Dream Theater.
What's your favorite song by Rush?
Rush’s “Limelight” would have to be at the very top of my list.
So I know that you have a few of your own Live365 stations, which one is your favorite?
Yes, I do actually have several! But the one I enjoy the most is a Classic Rock station I run called Classic Rock Stop.
Other than your own, what's your favorite station on Live365?
Sticking with my love for Classic Rock, I’ve really been enjoying Classic Rock 109 lately!
