|James Demer built his first speaker out of a shoebox when he was 12 years old. As a lifelong maker of stuff with a deep appreciation for music and sound, James built a career in location audio recording. While audio mixing a feature film on location in Barrow, Alaska, he cut some holes in a Pelican case, installed some speakers and an amplifier circuit, and turned it into a boombox. The crew loved it and DemerBox was born.
James still works on TV shows like Vice on HBO and Survivor on CBS. Through these opportunities he personally tests DemerBox all over the world, and his production colleagues continue to beat the daylights out of the DemerBox in the most harsh and demanding conditions, from near the top of Mt. Everest, to frigid Antarctica, and the steamy jungles of South America and Asia.
James at work on the frozen Arctic Ocean in 2010. It was on this job that he invented the DemerBox.
