Our mission is to make our clients' lives more extraordinary, fun and secure, by creatively integrating modern technologies into their homes and businesses.

about us.

We’ve been creating unforgettable experiences for homeowners and business owners alike throughout Dallas and Fort Worth since 2015.  Our team is made up of a group of tenured techies, who like to see just how far we can stretch the imagination when it comes to designing, installing and customizing audio/video, theater and security automation systems that our clients can easily control with just the touch of a button in Dallas and Prosper, TX.

With decades of experience dating back to the sounds of dial-up internet modems, we offer:
• Custom AV systems design and installation
• Home theater design and automation
• Security systems installation and monitoring
• Customizable, whole-home automation

Each project and installation is uniquely designed for our clients in Dallas, Prosper, and beyond. That’s why we encourage them to sit back and kick up their feet, while we bring in the best systems and products (i.e., TVs, speakers, custom AV systems, lighting, smart devices, home theater design, etc.) that fit their budget and needs. All of our work is backed by a full warranty and our team’s ongoing technical support.
What makes us MediaHeads?
For starters, we have an undeniable passion for technology. Some call us geeks. We call ourselves fanatics … well, and geeks, too. We also love what we do, because every day, we get to use our favorite big-kid tools to design one-of-a-kind experiences that make our clients smile in delight. There’s nothing better than that! Oh … and we have #awholelottafun!

Steve Harman

Co-Owner & Chief Innovator

Steve is the resident optimist. In fact, his business mantra, “If you can dream it, we can build it,” is a true reflection of his entrepreneurial drive, innovative talent and fearless creativity. In 2015, Steve co-founded MediaHead with a vision to design life-changing automation experiences for homeowners and business owners in the DFW area. With his first tech job dating back to 2000, when he sold dial-up 56K Internet services, Steve has a vast understanding and great appreciation for technological advancements. His main goal today is to make modern technologies simple enough for everyone to enjoy. Steve has worked within the residential technology industry for more than 16 years. He is a graduate of Texas State University and a certified CEDIA AV specialist.

Steve’s favorite vintage technology:
“My earliest memory with technology is playing Pong on our big tube TV. But my favorite was probably listening to my jambox, waiting for my favorite songs to play on the radio so that I could record them on a cassette tape.”

Steve’s favorite current technology:
“It’s still listening to music! I went from recording on the jambox to using a CD player, to downloading Napster, to using MP3 players and now to streaming music in every room in my house.”

Jeff Bassman

Co-Owner & Technology Guru

Jeff is the controlling one … in a good way. Since the day his family acquired their first wired TV remote control, Jeff has valued all of the progressions with remote devices and wireless software that allow people to control their gadgets in convenient ways. Now, as co-founder and co-owner of MediaHead, Jeff loves providing homeowners and business owners with access to  total automation control through the simplest, user-friendly smart devices. Fitting of our “total home control” techie, Jeff’s responsibilities spread into every area of MediaHead, including sales, marketing, tech support, recruiting, bookkeeping and more. Jeff and Steve met in 2010, working in home automation. In 2015, they decided to combine their passions and expertise to create MediaHead. Jeff is a graduate of the University of Iowa and a certified CEDIA AV specialist.

Jeff’s favorite vintage technology:
“I remember watching TV and having the remotes that were attached to the TV with a cord that wasn’t long enough to reach the couch.”

Jeff’s favorite current technology:
“I love the ability to control my entire home from one app. Total home control.”

Mitchell White

System Designer

Mitchell provides consultations, product sales, and install support for our clients.

This TechHead is a bit of a nerd in the best of ways! His time away from work is filled by making music, mountain biking, and camping. And, his two dogs, a Husky named Riley and a mutt named Neo, are his best buddies. 

With his love of music, it's no wonder that Mitchell's favorite recent product install was the newly released REL HT1510 Predator Subwoofer... nothing like setting high expectations of sound, power, and elegance for all of your listening needs.

Ben Glass

Smart Home Tech

Ben makes sure the various pieces of technology in your home or office work together to keep complex systems simple and easy for client use. This is no easy task! 

Installing state-of-the-art smart home technology like @josh.ai is the highlight of his job. Ben says, "Seeing the real-life use of this new technology is impressively good. I look forward to how it develops." 

When he isn't designing your smart home technology, Ben enjoys DIY products at home, collecting vinyl, and rock climbing. Are you seeing a trend that MediaHeads LOVE music?!

Brian Marmolejo

Project Manager & Lead Technician

Brian's responsibilities include, "any and everything that needs to be done." He plans installs from start to finish and brings his best TechHead skills to every project.

He doesn't have a favorite product install, because he truly enjoys each project for its own individuality. No two installs are the same!

Brian is a bilingual Ecuadorian who loves hockey, music (a MediaHead requirement going forward), FOOD, and his best buddy Macee, a pit-bull/husky mix.

Ja'Kobe Presley

TechHead

MediaHead is excited to have Ja’Kobe on board for his audio visual technician skills. He has lived in Dallas for six years and loves it here, but his heart is in his hometown of Memphis.

Ja’Kobe loves sports, gaming, street racing, and above all - spending time with loved ones. Favorite Sports Teams include New Orleans Saints, Oregon Ducks, and Memphis Grizzlies.

When asked what his favorite current tech toy is, it was an easy choice… Playstation 5!

Jose Leyva

TechHead

MediaHead has welcomed Jose to the team with experience in construction and installing alarm systems. He is a born and raised Dallasite and has a passion for boxing.

He's enjoying learning all things AV, so it's no wonder his favorite tech toy is a tone generator and probe kit for identifying and tracing individual wires or cables within a group without damaging the insulation. It's easily the most useful testing equipment for an AV tech - like a hammer to a carpenter.

Jose loves spending his time boxing and with his family and friends. He is also bilingual in English and Spanish.
