Meet The Team
A perfect blend of creativity, technical wizardry, and one dedicated beta tester.
The best formula for digital chemistry.
Jon has loved hi-fidelity his entire life. With his first (ever) paycheck he invested in a pair of speakers. While in college, his study breaks were spent daydreaming in hi-fi stereo shops. After graduating with a degree in engineering, he worked as an automotive engineer for 10 years honing his skills in customer service and satisfaction as the liaison between the customers and engineers. Jon brings his experience listening to customers and implementing their thoughts and ideas to the Sound Vision. In 2007 Jon merged his hobby and passion (of all things automation, A/V, geeky) and launched The Sound Vision. Jon is a CEDIA certified installer, home acoustics alliance level 1 and in the summer of 2015 he graduated from the Goldman Sach’s 10K small business program. Jon’s favorite remote tester is his 7 year old daughter.

After graduating with an architectural degree and working for architectural firms in Chicago, Tama joined colleagues to form their own company and worked on some amazingly creative projects. Fast forward to 2010, she marries a guy named Jon Anderson (who bribed her with girls scout cookies and calls from Japan) and she moves to Michigan. In addition to working with a designer, Tama has now joined her husband in his life’s dream by bringing architectural project management to the table. She ties together the idea of tech and design to make it seamlessly fit into whatever space TSV is working on. Tama has a 6 year old daughter and of course being married to Jon, their house is done elegantly with The Sound Vision products. Tama says she couldn’t live without the “good morning button!”, so why should you? Ask about it!
