The History of Universal Light and Sound

Universal Light and Sound began at a grassroots level in the shadow of the ‘90s downtown party scene.  While a student at NYU’s Stern Business school, co-founder Mark Johnson worked nightly at well-known venues in New York City.  He found himself drawn to the technology behind the music and lighting at events.  After graduation he became even more active in the event industry.  While juggling a day job as a systems engineer at Goldman Sach’s, he continued to grow what has become Universal Light and Sound.

More about our company

In 2007, Universal Light and Sound was born in partnership with Mina Sani.  Mina is a former entertainment writer.  She worked for People magazine, Time Out NY and Hearst magazines.  Together Mina and Mark made ULS a fixture in New York’s wedding and special event industry.  They soon expanded and began renting AV equipment.  From hip raw spaces in Brooklyn to penthouses suits in Manhattan, ULS continues to deliver top-notch service.
