Stephanie Katsaros is as passionate about sustainability as she is about music. The two passions come together in Bright Beat, her specialty consulting business that focuses on sustainability initiatives at large-scale events and venues. With her finger on the pulse of the Chicago music scene—and on her video camera and microphone—Stephanie loves how quickly and easily her new Thecus N4200 Pro* NAS system allows her to backup, store, organize, and manage audio and video files of interviews—allowing her more time to follow live music and promote sustainability.
Ramona is an Aspen, Colorado-based freelance television host and producer who combines a passion for outdoor adventure with captivating and innovative programming. So it’s no surprise she’s always searching for cutting-edge technology to get more out of life, whether on the slopes, on the beach, or in the office. Wherever she goes, her Synology DS712+* NAS unit gives her peace of mind knowing that all her valuable files are not only stored but safeguarded.
As a veteran graphic designer, Jason works with clients from his home office in Colorado on branding and identity, marketing communications, and web/user interface design projects. With his NETGEAR ReadyNAS Ultra 2 Plus* NAS system, now he can easily share files with his creative team and clients, as well as give them simple and fast remote access.
Ron co-founded and runs his own New York-based design shop, Smartbomb Creative Studio. But it’s his work as a music producer, DJ, and record company micro-label co-founder that’s really found a groove with his new NETGEAR ReadyNAS Ultra 6* NAS system. It’s not just about storing his music in one place. It’s making it easy and safe to access and share music and collaborate with creative teammates, clients, and fans around the world.
Musician, composer, producer, designer—Bill Wadhams is a blur of creative energy. Which could explain the name of the ‘80s-era L.A. New Wave/synthpop band he co-fronted and still manages, Animotion. With his Synology DS712+* now in the mix, he’s streaming music to his home theater system for production meetings and listening parties, and backing up production files on a new Animotion album, as well as a new solo recording.
It’s hard enough to securely store, share, and back up digital assets when you’re as busy as Dave Helfrey, a freelance art director and illustrator. But Dave’s alter ego, Baron von Goolo, doubles the trouble. As the Baron, Dave is the creative mind and producer behind FrightTown; Portland, Oregon’s largest Halloween-themed attraction. FrightTown raises the dead— as well as the dollars for the American Red Cross. Now with his QNAP TS-239 Pro II+ NAS, Dave has taken the fright out of digital data growth and put the fun back in with an efficient and powerful business storage center.
