Tom Wilson


Media Production Manager
Smith Warehouse, Bay 5

I’ve been working at Duke for 30+ years. I’ve been part of many major events that involved media production. Some of those are videographer for Duke Basketball and Football tv shows. Crewing and directing Duke commencement ceremonies and other graduation activities for over 25 years. Three president inaugurations. I handle professional quality audio and video projects from concept to completion.

Outside of work I enjoy playing guitar as well as going to live music events, restoring my 1930 Ford model “A” that’s been in my family since the 1950s. Although I do photography at work I also enjoy it as a hobby. I play golf when time permits. I also have a group of friends that get together for tailgates and other events. They usually consist of smoking meat and different appetizers.

I met my wife through a softball team that was comprised of audio-visual employees at Duke University and Duke Medical Center in the mid 90’s. We’ve been married 25+ years and have aa 21-year-old son who’s a senior at Charlotte and is a computer science major.
