Our People

LUI_STORE05_ADAM_FRAZIER_4in_0166

Adam Frazier

Store Manager

With ListenUp since 2013

Adam Frazier grew up in Colorado and got his start in the A/V industry after moving to Los Angeles for college. He spent 11 years in L.A. before moving back to Colorado in 2013 and starting his career with ListenUp. “I really like working in the A/V business for the variety. Every day is different and every job is different, so it keeps things interesting. I especially like working for ListenUp because of the flexibility. There are a lot of opportunities for personalized growth here.”

Adam’s love for the industry tends to bleed into his personal life where he likes to play guitar and sing. He also loves spending time with his wife and kids and going on backpacking adventures in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Area.

GARYWRASSE

Gary Wrasse

Senior Sales Consultant

With ListenUp since 1994

Gary Wrasse originally hails from Southern California, where he worked at a Pasadena A/V dealer for 9 years. Even having grown up there, though, he eventually became weary of the crowded life on the left coast. His wife is from Colorado Springs originally, so he jumped at the chance to come here.

Gary was the store manager for several years, but now he’s back to doing what he really loves — dealing with customers. “I enjoy the whole process of putting together high-end systems. I’m working on a big job right now that involves distributed audio and HD video, Crestron control, Lutron lighting, and a dedicated home theater with Rives acoustical treatments. The clients are great, I get to work with a nationally recognized architect, and I have all kinds of support from our engineering and custom departments up in Denver as well as our installation staff down here. It’s the type of job that really makes me feel like I’m in the right place.”

LUI_STORE05_JASON_KAWAKAMI_4in_0063

Jason Kawakami

Sales Consultant

With ListenUp since 2016

For Colorado Springs native Jason Kawakami, the decision to join ListenUp was a family thing. “I’ve only technically been in the AV business for about a few years, but my brothers have been in it much longer and are the entire reason I got into this.” His two brothers, Clint and Brian, have been a part of our Colorado Springs technical team for the past decade. “It’s great getting to work with some of my family, but the constant exposure to new products and innovations — and designing amazing systems for my customers — has been awesome.”

When he’s not learning about all of the cool new products that ListenUp offers, Jason likes to golf, go to concerts, hike, travel, and learn new things whenever possible.

Clint Kawakami

Project Manager

With ListenUp since 2010

Starting in 2010, Clint was the second in the Kawakami family to join the Colorado Springs installation team. He got started in this industry when he was 15 and realized it was possible to put a massive stereo system in a car that could blow out windshields. He moved from cars to installing phone systems to installing home audio. He has been installing home audio and video for 11 years and loves the home automation and integration that ListenUp offers to clients.
"My favorite things about working at ListenUp are the changing products and technology," says Clint. "I also love the opportunity to meet clients, to see the newest homes and décor."
Clint is a native of Colorado Springs. He does all the Colorado favorites like snowboarding, riding motorcycles, shooting photography and going to live concerts. If you don't find him out at a client's house it's a pretty sure bet he is outside somewhere living it up. Clint is also the proud father of a female boxer puppy.
