Mr. Dawson attributes his success to his perseverance, his drive for success and to constantly looking to challenge himself for when opportunities to grow and learn present themselves. He became involved in his profession because of the technical producer position opportunity that became available. Initially, Mr. Dawson had no idea what a technical producer position entailed. He underwent a week-long audition and fortunately, he was hired. Ten weeks into the show, he became a voice over talent of “The Adam Carolla Show.”
Being able to build a radio station at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City has been Mr. Dawson’s most notable accomplishment. It was at the beginning of the Green Initiatives where they built a broadcast booth and created an entire radio station to play music and communicate with others to provide updates of the events. In the coming years, Mr. Dawson would like to tour and perform with his band and hopes to be nominated for a Grammy Award for music production and also to voice a national advertising campaign.
