    IP: Steve Withey - Elite AV Innovations

    Elite AV Innovations designs smart home technology and automation systems that make life easier for homeowners and businesses. The firm designs technology solutions for luxury residential and commercial spaces. Our team of expert technicians blend experience in corporate IT and a thorough understanding of high-end interior design to create award-winning, full-service AV solutions that are customized to each client. No more overzealous salespeople pushing expensive technology that’s too much for your family. Just useful technology systems that are unobtrusive, attractive, and easy to use.

    Steve Withey founded Elite AV Innovations in 2013 after spending 20 years in the information technology field. His leadership roles at famed fintech companies like Experian and Sevin Rosen Funds honed Steve’s expertise in IT and telecommunications. His passion lies in problem-solving for clients, customizing technology to make their home or business as smart and easy to use as it is beautiful.

    Technology should solve problems, not create them. That’s why we start each project by asking our clients how they want to use their space, what problems they’ve encountered with it, and what they wish their space could accomplish. Then we build a system beyond what they thought was possible — a system that’s perfect for their home or business.


    Designer: Michelle Lynn - ML Interiors

    Michelle Lynn

    Michelle Lynne began her interior design career after spending more than two decades working in Corporate America. She began in the home staging arena and has since built a successful, award winning, full service interior design firm, employing talented designers and serving clients across the country.

    In the summer of 2018, Michelle began focusing on a big gap she saw missing in the interior design industry: teaching interior designers how to run the business of an interior design business. She now engages in private coaching and leads an in depth, 12-month group coaching program, both options focus on teaching designers profitable processes, systems, strategies and mindset needed to run a streamlined, profitable interior design firm.

    Her motto is simple: we rise by lifting others.
