Carley, President/Creative Lead

Carley Underwood

Carley is the heart of Visual Concepts and a force to reckon with! Her skill at creating an amazing look was polished while she worked with her business partner, Mark Traverse (affectionately known by his friends and co-workers as "The Mad Designer"). She loves spending time with her family, friends, and teaching others to do what she does. Her commitment to her clients is shown with each project! Carley has always maintained an open-door policy as well as personally overseeing all phases of any event she’s in charge of. She won’t sell you the event and disappear – as a matter of fact you can often find her up on a ladder during the installation working side-by-side with her staff. So regardless of the size and scope of your next project, you can rest easy knowing that Carley’s vast experience is working for you.

DJ, Sound & Lighting Technician

Matthew, DJ, Sound & Lighting Technician

Matthew Underwood

Matthew was born into this business. The son of Carley, Matthew had spent many hours watching his mother and father work side-by-side and helped wherever needed. Filling almost every job where he was needed while growing up gave Matthew a broad range of experience on what was required to create a successful event. He then struck out on his own creating props and art, welding, fabricating and airbrush artistry were all components to his finished projects. When Visual Concepts added lighting and sound to it's offering, Matthew jumped back in to immediately learn all he could about both the equipment he was handling and how to use it properly. It was a great fit, combining Matthew's artistic eye and music-loving ears the lighting & sound naturally expanded to include DJ services. He also takes care of the facebook page, so be sure to check us out and say hi!
