A Pittsburgh native, Lisa grew up in and graduated from South Fayette High School in 1997. From there, she obtained sales experience in the real estate and mortgage industries. After spending some time with National City Bank in Grand Rapids, MI, from 2005-2008, Lisa returned to her Pittsburgh roots.
While she was quite successful in real estate, she has always been looking to sell something for which she has a strong passion. Seeing the impact Emerald Owl Productions has made in North Carolina, Lisa sees a huge opportunity in the Steel City. "I love Pittsburgh. I love the concept Emerald Owl has of bringing people of all ages together in a fun, safe environment, while raising money for great causes everyone can agree are worthy. In today's age, we need this. This company could be something truly great for Pittsburgh and the surrounding area."
Lisa was particularly attracted to the service component Emerald Owl Productions offers. Since the 8th grade, she has made visits to a local nursing home and still does this today. More recently, Lisa became part of a beautification program in Ambridge. She is passionate about giving our youth opportunities to interact socially and be active.
"Emerald Owl Productions seemed like a perfect fit, something of which I can be passionate about and successful at the same time. As the regional director for the Pittsburgh office, I am excited to show the city what we can do for one another!"

Mike brings his school counseling and fundraising experience to Emerald Owl Productions. As a school counselor, he oversaw a large charity event, very similar in design to our fundraising model. His events eventually began to raise $15,000-$18,000 profit each year at a middle school. This helped create the Emerald Owl Productions model that is profitable, fun, and memorable, while providing student-led opportunities.
Mike has been interested in helping great causes through events for a long time. After visiting a neighbor's haunted house when he was in the 2nd grade, Mike begged his parents to let him have a haunted house of his own the next year. A six year tradition began, eventually raising thousands of dollars for the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and attracting hundreds of people per year to walk through his parents house! Since 1984 as a 3rd grader, Mike has been planning events that are fun, bring people together, and give back to others. Mike is based in Emerald Isle.

Rod Shuler has spent more than two decades in the music industry; a marathon stretch of live and recorded performances that have allowed the Raleigh, NC, native to achieve critical acclaim in the music industry. An accomplished songwriter, DJ, producer, and event manager Shuler first found the spotlight as a member of the mid-'90s, groundbreaking Christian rock/rap hybrid Reality Check. The band's self-titled debut sold more than 75,000 copies, earning 1996 regional Gospel Music Association New Artist honors in the process and giving him a platform to perform live at a number at a number of Christian music events and festivals (including Creation East/West, Atlanta Fest, Alive Fest, Cornerstone and others).
In 1998, Shuler—drawing on the growing influences of blatant, Massive Attack and others—formed the Nashville, TN-based fleau, with Kristin Schweain (now of ZOEgirl), and later, Marisol Laboy on vocals. The trip-hop group released a six-song EP as well as a full-length (self-titled) recording, and was featured in CCM, 7Ball and Hard Music magazines. During its first year on mp3.com, fleau's music had more than 100,000 plays, and was eventually featured on more than 40 multimedia web sites. The band, which quickly reached more than 33,000 fans on its MySpace site, was also named Beatmart.com's top independent artist for its efforts. While performing with fleau, Shuler was able to grow even more creatively, and was blessed with the opportunity to work with artists like TobyMac (Toby McKeehan, Des Dickerson, Venus Envy, and Al Denson on a variety of projects. Since 2009, Shuler has promoted and managed large-scale, multi-artist concerts and fundraising events for NC-based Lucas Gambit Entertainment, hosting internationally regarded talent like Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Trip Lee, and Tenth Avenue North. Additionally, as djrs, he regularly performs and emcees events across central North Carolina.
Isabella (everyone calls her Izzie) has lived in Carteret County her entire life. A graduate of the East Carteret High School Mariner Band, she is currently a Music Education major at Campbell University aspiring to be a Music Teacher and hopefully a youth pastor.

Roman Keith Hines has been in the entertainment industry since 1984. His family owned a roller skating rink in Hillsborough, North Carolina where he started spinning records and serving as the rink dee-jay. Realizing his passion and strength, Roman went to broadcasting school in 1987 at Lenoir Community College in Kinston. While in broadcasting school, he worked for 106.5 WSFL (New Bern) and 90.5 WKNS (Kinston). After broadcasting school, Roman returned home to Durham where he became a dee-jay at WDNC (620 AM). In 1991, he opened his own mobile dee-jay company under the name Sights and Sounds. To supplement his income, he signed on as a teacher’s assistant in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Sights and Sounds started doing mostly school dances. Over time, the company specialized in professional lighting, including lasers. This set Sights and Sounds apart from other companies, which secured higher end laser light dance parties, often hosting thousands of people. The addition of the lights gave Sights and Sounds the opportunity to provide lighting at concerts of all kinds, including KC and the Sunshine Band, Technotronic, Crystal Waters, and Kool And the Gang.
Roman’s passion is working with youth as he is highly sought after for everything from small birthday parties to large high school proms. His enthusiasm and constant interaction with the crowd make him a favorite with everyone at the party.
Roman takes pride in sharing his life story with others as a way to show youth what they can accomplish. As a child, Roman was diagnosed with a processing learning disability and dyscalculia. He had great difficulty with organization, mathematics, hearing the teacher, and often “just felt clueless.” School was a struggle for much of his life. After attending the Hill Learning Development Center in Durham, he learned how to adjust. While he struggled in English and Math, Roman always wanted to work in entertainment and thus began to read about the subject. Through mostly self-study, Roman learned the trade which allowed him to start his own business of Sights and Sounds.
Roman shares this story of his youth with others because he wants kids who struggle with any disability to realize that they are capable of finding a marketable strength with which they can make a difference and make a living. Roman is based in Durham.
