ABOUT US

PROS YOU CAN TRUST

 

Sonic Image is an energetic team of passionate event professionals. We thrive in challenging situations. Our extensive experience gives us the knowledge required to produce flawless events again and again. We love to hear, “I’m not even sure if this is possible but…” and making the impossible happen right before our clients’ eyes. From business meetings to full scale conferences and everything in between, we know what it takes to turn an event into an experience.

 

We had humble beginnings, with Sonic Image being founded in 2012 in president Derick Aubie’s home. Those days are long behind us, as we quickly gained momentum and a reputation as a company that excels in customer service and satisfaction. We are the provider of choice for returning and regular clients, and their loyalty means the world to us.

 

We are obsessed with business growth, and pushing the envelope of what’s possible. We have no intention of slowing down – the future looks bright and we look forward to expanding our business into new markets.

Our Team

Derrick Aubie

Derrick Aubie

Founder/ President

President and Founder Derrick Aubie started Sonic Image as a one-man show in 2012, and has seen his dream flourish into an established company known for its stellar customer service and exceptional attention to detail. Not known to rest on his laurels, Derrick is consistently focused on growing his business and pushing the limits of what’s possible.

Possessing a certificate of Recording Arts from OIART, Derrick has been in the audio industry for over a decade, and his interest in good sound is probably more of an obsession. He’s still working on finding his own sound on the guitar, but he’s constantly cheered on and supported by his lovely wife Jenny and their son Adyn.

Philip Gallant

Philip Gallant

Regional Operations Manager

Philip Gallant has been an audiophile for as long as he can remember, and has worked in the audio-visual industry for almost 20 years. He has traveled far and wide across the country, overseeing thousands of events, on a noble mission to save promoters and event managers from boring their audiences.

Philip is an organizational savant, and has proactively considered everything that could possibly go wrong during an event to ensure he has the solution ready. When not tinkering with sound and presentation, Phil is usually spending time with his wife Jenny (yes, another Jenny) and his son Jayden (which, we know, rhymes with Adyn, and yes that’s weird, but no it wasn’t on purpose).

 

Nick Chandler

Account Manager

A music aficionado and award-winning guitarist, Nick brings a unique perspective to his role as account manager for Sonic. With a background in business and a love of technology, Nick boasts a commitment to quality and customer service that has quickly made him a client-favourite.

Nick graduated from NBCC with a Diploma in Business, and later Graduated with Honours from the Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology. After completing his education from OIART, he achieved such outstanding results as a student that he was invited to be an instructor the very next year.

When not helping bring memorable events to life, Nick loves playing guitar, spending time with his family, and geeking out on the latest and greatest AV gear and trends.

Jamie Cormier

Jamie Cormier

Audio Visual Technician

A lifelong love of the audio-visual world attracted Jamie to join Sonic Image. Jamie studied at the Centre for Arts and Technology in Halifax, and after spending several years working outside of the AV world, he embraced the opportunity to put his education, passion, and experience to work.


As an Audio Visual Technician, Jamie is involved in every part of an event, including coordination, set-up, troubleshooting, client-service, gear maintenance, and post-event tear down. He loves being part of the Sonic team, and appreciates the collaboration and dedication that everyone brings to their roles.


When not helping bring memorable events to life and ensuring flawless AV delivery, Jamie loves cooking, spending time with his family, and of course playing music.

Amanda Jardine

Amanda Jardine

Audio Visual Technician

A long-time musician and music-lover, Amanda was thrilled to join a team that shared her affinity for facilitating outstanding sound. As an AV technician, she is involved in the assembly and operation of various audio-visual setups, while working with clients to ensure they have everything they need to guarantee their success.

Amanda loves being a part of the Sonic Image team, enjoying the collaboration with her colleagues and also appreciating the autonomy and self-management that her role affords her. When not helping bring memorable events to life, Amanda loves playing music, riding Honda minibikes, and gardening – though presumably not at the same time.
