Darlyna Mitchell
Sales Administrator
ext. 352

She started in 2008, a “newbie” in Location Sound terms. Her bubbly and upbeat personality is perfectly suited for a job that requires heavy customer and inter-office interaction. Darlyna doesn't do "dour". But she does love to Salsa. Lessons anyone?

Dave Auslender
Sales Representative
ext. 340

If you find yourself in our sales department, there is a good chance that you'll be assisted by Dave Auslender. Dave has extensive knowledge about film production gear such as walkie-talkies, bell and light stations, repeaters, Telex wireless systems, and more. Dave started prepping walkie and wireless packages in Rental's Communication section in 1997. Later, he moved to the Rental Coordinator position handling customer service and walkie-talkie logistics for several top television productions. At the beginning of 2007, he made the switch to the Sales Department.

While working full time, he attended the Pasadena Art Center where he completed a course in “Basic Sound Mixing”. His audio expertise was further enhanced by completing Location Sound's in-house “Mixing Techniques” course, a Motorola-sponsored “Radio Fundamentals” course, as well as Yamaha and Sennheiser product immersion courses. His hobbies include playing drums and woodworking.

Doug Marcum
Sales Representative
ext. 334

The Sales Department's resident wine connoisseur, Doug has been with the company since 1994. A professional musician from 1974 to 1992, and moonlighting on “off” nights as a recording engineer in Northern California, Doug has seen a big change in audio equipment in the last three decades. “Matching the right gear to the right customer and project can sometimes be a challenge,” he says. But, no worries. Doug effectively steers you through this labyrinth of options.
