Steven J. Thorburn, PE, CTS-D, CTS-I, Principal Consultant, Thorburn Associates


Steve enjoys helping others understand the principles of acoustics and audiovisual technology almost as much as he enjoys sipping a good single malt scotch.  His dual degrees in electrical engineering and technical theatre give him a balanced left brain/right brain approach to project solutions. 


Educator of the Year, two ICIA Facility Design awards, author and teacher and experience on over 2000 different projects round out his professional career.


Steve loves working in his woodshop, cooking something up on the grill, or just hiking in the woods. 

TEA boards and committees
