We are dreamers, innovators, risk takers, and tech geeks (balanced by a few Type As). We’re constantly pushing ourselves further, seeking the newest and never been done before, which is what keeps us at the top of the game. To us, there is nothing better than having a client ask, “What is possible?” and then achieving the impossible.

My day is a series of questions, answers, challenges, and solutions, knowing what to do with what I know. From, Live Aid 85, Electronic Art’s first Exhibit booth, Intel Pentium Launch, E3 Mega Booths, intrepid newspaper gal in British Guyana, some quality time working with faves Tom Cruise on set in LA and Eminem in Europe and Japan, right up to the Intel CES keynote in 2015 and YPO’s 2016,2017, 2018 in Dubai, Vancouver and Singapore, the resource pot is full of Aces.
An avid Sci-Fi and Fantasy fan you will find me curled up on a rainy day with a glass of green chartreuse mumbling “I will take the ring to Mordor though I do not know the way.”
I love Funko, Films and the Ocean, I always wanted to be a Tenenbaum. I really don’t like escalators and pineapple, fortunately I rarely meet them at the same time.

- Mario EisoldDirector of TechnologyMario EisoldDirector of Technology
As a Director of Technology Solutions I get to play with the latest technology and developer tools. Together with a great team of software developers and technicians, I can create, design and build awesome applications and products that put us and our clients always one step ahead. Travelling to events all over the world and seeing those products being used fills me with great pride. However, I personally enjoy the desire and the challenge to come up with something even better after a product was launched.
In my personal life you'll find me playing tournament-paintball, watching soccer, WRC Rally and Formula 1, playing instruments and teaching music lessons to younger kids, and mowing the lawn - I love any excuse to be outside.
- Kevin FuldaChief Creative Officer and Creative TechnologistKevin FuldaChief Creative Officer and Creative Technologist
They call me the secret sauce, I have a thirst to top the theory of everything, how to make it better, bridging creative and technical worlds to fully realize and enable the best and most challenging ideas.
From projection mapping to choreographed dancing robots with lasers, the art of programming becomes a multi-platform extravaganza. My job is to put what I know and don’t yet know into a variety of solutions that make sense for the scope of the task at hand.
When I do not have my thinking hat on I can be found with a fishing rod waiting for my next big catch.
- Amanda FuldaExecutive Creative DirectorAmanda FuldaExecutive Creative Director
The Fulda creative process is fluid yet focused, empathizing, and energetic with a fresh, stylish, and new-fashioned approach. Diverse clients, Intel, Walmart, Telemundo and Mutemath succeeded with projection mapped, three-dimensional canvases, while PTC, Allscripts and YPO drew super wide using widescreen graphics and animation over 160’ in wide.
A creative challenge takes me to the unexpected, from raw to specific elements I love to reel them in. The reason I keep taking creative challenges is to make jumps in my skills and yes, my creativity. I know what works well and what does not.
I can be found birding with my 7D mark II in Maine or Dubai or snuggling with my Goldendoodle while trouncing the other Fulda in Destiny.
If you are thinking “Hmmm, two Fuldas at Ovation”, you are right, we are married.
- Tracy MullendoreSenior ProducerTracy MullendoreSenior Producer
I have been working in the event world for over 20 years. What I truly enjoy most is the unique challenge that each project brings. Always striving to provide the best possible production that will "wow" audiences, I find joy in delighting my clients.
In my spare time, you’ll find me cheering on my daughter’s volleyball team, hiking or biking on local trails, on my yoga mat, or traveling the world looking for the next adventure.
- Carolyn Waldron-ParrExecutive Video ProducerCarolyn Waldron-ParrExecutive Video Producer
As OVATION’s Executive Video Producer, you’ll find Carolyn involved in any number of things including (but not limited to): script writing, directing, video editing, having lunch, drafting budgets, and managing production crews. With professional roots in videography and video editing, Carolyn definitely speaks the production industry language. She can also ask for directions to the library in French and can conduct an entire conversation using only GIFs.
Carolyn walks the line between the Creative and the logistically-sound. It’s a place where great ideas walk hand-in-hand with the approved scope of work and budget parameters—a place where blue birds sing and there’s a whiskey spring.
In her spare time, Carolyn loves to cook, spend time with her family, and enjoys painting landscapes along with old Bob Ross episodes on YouTube.
