Our Staff

All of the staff here at Norseman AV have varied backgrounds that all seem to intersect with the audio-video industry. We continually educate ourselves in the newest technologies as well as use them in our own personal lives.

Julian Parker-Burns

Administrative Synergiser

Julian became part of the Norseman AV team in February of 2018 after returning to the Valley from years of being abroad as part of the Foreign Service. Julian is a painter, photographer and teacher who is passionate about art sounding and looking great.  Julian had many jobs in the 16 years overseas: English teacher, Housing Officer, and Disaster and Outreach for planning for American Citizen Services in Nepal and Uganda...to name just a few. Julian's love of fine presentation and being a world-wide jack-of-all-trades plugs him in perfectly as Norseman's administrative synergiser.
