Joseph Pompei

Founder and President of Holosonics

Dr. Joseph Pompei is the Founder and President of Holosonics. He is also the inventor of the unique Audio Spotlight technology, which creates narrow beams of sound that can be controlled with the same precision as light.  Beginning his career in acoustics at only 16 years old as the youngest Engineer at Bose Corporation, he eventually decided to pursue research in sound field control and nonlinear acoustics to create the Audio Spotlight at the MIT Media Laboratory, where he received his Ph.D.  With only $2000, he founded Holosonics to commercialize the technology. It is now used to provide controlled, private audio in thousands of public places worldwide.
