Anthony Nittoli is one of the most accomplished audio video designers in the United States. In a career spanning over 40 years, he has worked on the design and installation of sound reinforcement, video, and technical communication systems for a wide variety of performing arts and entertainment facilities.
Anthony brings broad “real world” experience to bear on his design projects. In addition to his design and installation background, he has extensive experience as both a recording engineer and in live concert mixing, working with a variety of artists.
