Brinkster Audio Video was launched by Michael Purcell in 2007.  Michael has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from NC State University and a Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Tech.  He has been employed with Cisco Systems for over ten years, starting out as a Customer Support Engineer in the Technical Assistance Center and then transitioning to the sales organization as a Consulting Systems Engineer specializing in Voice over IP network design.  Throughout his career at Cisco, Michael has accumulated CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert) certifications in six different disciplines, a feat unmatched by any other individual.  With the proliferation of IP (Internet Protocol) into home entertainment and automation, Michael's expertise in IP networks will prove invaluable in applying this technology to the custom home entertainment market. 

Michael is excited to get back to what got him interested in Electrical Engineering in the first place.  As a high-school student, Michael was a custom car audio enthusiast and installer.  Only now, instead of cars, it will be houses getting Michael's personal touch and commitment to excellence.
