The Tjernagel family prepares for dinner on a cold, quiet Monday evening in early December, totally unaware of what is coming. Their lives are completely changed in an instant by a violent explosion.
Marcus dePaula got his start working in the music industry serving as the production manager for Cafe Milano in Nashville, TN in the mid-90‘s, and later went on to work for seven years with Clair Bros. Enterprises in Nashville, TN as a touring live audio engineer and systems technician. He developed his technical expertise and troubleshooting skills in the intense and fast pace touring environment, becoming one of the most sought-after monitor engineers in Nashville. He recently spent three semesters teaching the Technical Track at The Contemporary Music Center in Brentwood, TN, where he had the opportunity to share his expertise and experiences with college students pursuing a career in the music industry. After “retiring” from touring in late 2005, Marcus joined the Audio One Nashville team where he was a CEDIA certified Systems Installation Technician specializing in planning and installing professional recording studios and high end home theaters. Marcus later joined the staff of his church, The Village Chapel, serving as Technical Director where he served for seven years. It was there that his interest in web technologies and services was sparked in building The Village Chapel's new website. Since joining Jenn as co-owner of Mixtus Media, Marcus has honed his technical skills in WordPress and Joomla CMS frameworks, graphics and video for the web, along with other web technologies in support of Mixtus Media's services. He is the technical "braun" to Jenn's brains.
