Who is this Rick Singer guy?
No, he's not the notorious ringleader behind the college scandal. This Rick Singer may be notorious among family and friends, but otherwise serving anonymously as just one of thousands of media engineers working with and for film and television talent to create the best images and sound possible.
For 40 years give or take, Rick has designed, installed, broken, fixed systems and provide technical 'therapy' for four generations motion picture, broadcast television, post-production, media processing, and transmission systems. He's been grateful to work with the latest video equipment and the endless stream of media gee-whiz-gizmos for so long.
In recent years, Rick's primary focus has been systems design, network architecture, contribution and distribution transport streams, real-time IP and file-based workflow. But he also spends perhaps too time playing peaceful music and trying to keep his garden under control when the weather cooperates. Rick and his wife have two adult children, and two cats happily own us.
News and politics is the name of the game in Washington DC, so most of Rick's clients produce television news shows and documentaries. Sadly Rick struggles with an addiction to political news programs.
Rick studied film production at New York University and Electrical Engineering at California State University Los Angeles. and graduated in 2015 from George Mason University Volgenau School of Engineering with a Master of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a concentration in Telecommunications. Employers include WTTG-TV, Bell Atlantic, Democratic National Committee, U.S. Senate and the U.S. Department of State. Singer Media Engineering has served dozens of clients in broadcasting, the US Government, public institutions, and private organizations.
