How we began
AI was started in 2002 by T. Pope Jackson. After spending years navigating corporate America as the youngest buyer for the largest education publishing company in the world, he tracked assets for one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world. Pope excelled and elevated heights at every company he worked. But that wasn’t enough. Pope’s passion was and is truly for the arts and creating. He began immersing himself into the arts, working on any and every stage, film or TV production he could be apart of, in whatever capacity that was needed. Many years and many, many productions later, Pope has brought AI to the forefront of Production Design. With his wide and varied technical knowledge and experience, Actuator Inc. brings rounded and comprehensive tools to any project.
AI has produced many successful events throughout NYC. Theater and live music are just some of the latest ventures AI is beginning to make its mark.
If you can dream it, we can make it real.
