Jon Sheets

Jon Sheets is Sound Productions' resident "retired" thespian who joined the Sound Productions team 15 years ago. Jon graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a BFA in Theatre Performance. After graduation he came to Dallas to pursue his love for acting and music and immediately got involved with the theatre/film industry as well as the local and national jingle and voice-over market.

It is the latter that spurred his interest in the audio field and is the reason that he is at Sound Productions today. Being involved in both sides of the theatre experience has given him a unique perspective of the audio technical challenges facing today’s modern theatrical experience.
