If you don’t recognize this guy as a PreSonus face, it’s because we pay him to be on the other side of the camera. Andy Bond is PreSonus’ Maker of Cool Videos, and has been voted “Mr. Positivity” in our Annual Superlatives for five years running.
Husband, dad, business owner, full time employee–how does one do it all?
With PreSonus’ Eris E5 Studio Monitors. Duh.
What’s your official job title?
I’m the Senior Video Producer. So I lead the planning, filming, and editing of all of our videos (new products, training, marketing, sales, webcasts, events, and artist testimonials).
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
It’s very diverse. I get to be in a little bit of everything. Sometimes we travel and meet artists like MuteMath, Nothing More, Def Leppard, and others who love PreSonus products. Other times we are producing the launch videos for new products or traveling to NAMM. I’ve even filmed a short documentary about the Studio One team in Germany—this job is pretty fun at times.
What was the first 8 track, cassette, CD, digital download you purchased?
The first CD I remember buying was probably Pinkerton by Weezer. I was 8 or 9 years old I think.
Who’s your go to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?
My wife and I are huge Thrice and Dustin Kensrue fans and that’s probably our go-to.
My favorite video is the launch video for the CS18AI. We rented a full warehouse and got to be really creative. Outside of that, the Studio One 3 launch went really great. We got to fly to Germany to interview the developers, and then Los Angeles to interview several prominent producers using Studio One 3, and launched it all in one big day during PreSonus LIVE.
What are you currently working on? What’s next for you?
I’m currently planning several shoots to show off individual features of our new StudioLive Series III Mixers and a new video all about Studio One 3 Mix Engine capabilities. Of course, we are always making new products too, but I can’t tell you about those yet.

Anything else you want to share?
I’ve heard some people say I look like the Janitor. I’m not sure what they are talking about though…
