I have been installing A/V solutions since 2007. Prior to that, I served in the United States Marine Corps. Music is one of my passions in addition to working with my hands building and fixing things. I learned the ropes of audio and video/low voltage installation in residential locations, but I also thrive in a commercial setting. I've worked at schools, churches, stadiums, and municipalities to name a few. I look forward to when new technology comes out, and I enjoy learning how products can make someone’s life easier or more enjoyable.

With almost 20 years of experience in the A/V industry, I am still blown away at the power and rapid advancement of technology and how it can be utilized in the home and in work places. I witnessed the start of home automation technology when I was GM of the first Magnolia HIFI in DFW, and have since been CEDIA, McMasters, and Control4 certified. With so many diverse options to choose from, I thoroughly enjoy working with clients in all environments, whether for their home or their business, to help them find a solution that works for them. I am very blessed to work for a company that seeks to bring Glory to God, and hope to model The Lord’s love in my personal and business interactions. My wife and I have been married for over 11 years, and we have two beautiful little girls. When I’m not spending time laughing and having fun with them, I enjoy golfing.

I first started in the AV industry at the age of 19 when I worked for Circuit City. That is where I met the owner of Crown, Buddy Hughes. Buddy and I formed a strong friendship that would carry forward 10+ years. As my career continued on from Circuit City, I went into Banking and Investments for the next 5+ years where I learned about putting the client's needs first and most importantly how to develop, grow and foster relationships. Handling a client's finances is very sensitive and personal and my banking experience gave me the client relationship foundation that I still use today. Afterwards, I went to work for a small family business for the next 4 years that underwrote unique commercial insurance. This really helped me learn the needs of a business as well as the potential liabilities and exposures that a business can face on a day to day basis. Most importantly it allowed me to pull the curtain back on how the Construction world really works, which fortunately translates very well into the Commercial AV world. Now, as the Sales Manager at Crown A/V I am able to use all of my previous work experience to help develop and promote a strong client management culture as well as finding new avenues of business for Crown to grow into. My number one priority is putting our client’s needs first at Crown. Our sales staff is taught to develop relationships first and foremost to help ensure that our clients lifestyle is always the driving force behind our designs and solutions we provide. At Crown AV, we are looking for clients for life. We want our clients to think of Crown when they think of technology or AV.

Team Player John


John Dunn

I have always had a passion for quality sound and Hi-Fi. This passion led me into getting an associate’s degree in electronics. My professional work history includes: Texas Instruments, Lightolier Controls, including lighting controls for residential and commercial. I worked with another high-end AV company as a project manager for several years. I designed system infrastructure drawings and led two tech crews. Later I teamed up with Buddy in the role of design sales and helped grow the business. Since that time the company has continue to evolve with enhanced infrastructure to meet the needs of the growth we have continued to experience. We are incorporated and have a GM, Sales Manger, Project Manager’s, Admin, and multiple crews of talented and professional installer’s and programmers. I am honored to be a part of Crown Audio Video. As a company, we strive to set ourselves apart in several ways: integrity, godly principles, and passion to provide value and service second to none. Anyone can sell a box... We sell value and custom-designed solutions to meet your specific needs and expectations. We do not sell cookie cutter solutions. Each design and bid is created with the specific needs of each client in mind. It takes more time to provide a custom approach but the passion to give you the best systems and technology drive me to continue doing business this way. Whether a large scale commercial or residential project or a single room solution I will take time to listen to your needs and goals. We have positioned ourselves with some of the best product manufacture’s over the years. We team up with manufacture’s that provide high value, reliability, and support for our clients. My other passion is music. I have had the opportunity to play guitar with seasoned musicians from rock to smooth jazz. I also have been a part of several praise and worship teams and ministries for over 20 years. I am blessed with a lovely wife, Priscilla. As a 50 years old I have started the new venture of being a Dad to our son Jace, a true gift from God. I look forward the getting to know you and serving your AV needs.
