(510) 413-3793

Zach Riquelme grew up in Pittsburg, CA, and he has a B.A. degree in audio engineering. He has had the pleasure of working with some of the most prestigious AV companies in the world. When an opportunity to join the AVMS team came along, he jumped at the chance to join with such a great team. When not at work, Zach enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, riding his motorcycle, cooking and watching football. He thinks that the secret to his success is in choosing to find humor in tough and stressful moments. Someday he dreams of visiting Monaco to see the F1 Race firsthand. The best concert that he has ever attended was Radiohead in Berkley because it had an incredible set and the crowd really got into the music. If Zach had a time machine, he would travel to the future so he could see what space travel will look like when it's as common as taking a bus.
