Richard Hembree

With his understanding from both sides of the microphone, both as a worship leader and as a system designer / engineer / installer, Richard brings forth a passion for excellence in church audio.

Richard began his audio career with much fear and trembling when the audio engineer for the concert that night was caught in traffic on the other side of Atlanta.  (Only minor scars still remain.)  Over twenty years later, Richard is the founder and President of Ikthoos, Inc., a design and training firm which focuses on worship technologies for churches.  He has traveled as a clinician for Integrity Media, Maranatha Music, and Peavey Electronics.

Richard is also on staff with the contracting division of Griffith Sales - an independant manufacturer's representative firm for close to twenty product lines in the audio, lighting, studio, and residential industries - where he serves in a consultant / engineering style roll for AV contractors across the Southeast US.
