Alison Jamele, President/CEO
Besides overseeing the vital day-to-day operations of the company, co-founder of MediaMation, Inc., Alison Jamele, plays a crucial role in the long-term growth of MediaMation. Alison’s creative talent started at a young age when she studied classical and jazz guitar at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston where she majored in audio recording and engineering and returned to L.A. to complete her degree at California State University, Dominguez Hills, in television production and writing. From there she produced and directed her award winning documentary, "Sickle Cell Anemia: Is There Hope?", which was broadcast throughout Los Angeles and garnered a national and regional award. Alison then entered the Hollywood production community as a coordinator on top network TV shows leading her to branch off on her own to write and produce various commercials for major entertainment and corporate companies. In 1991 she and her husband, Dan Jamele, founded MediaMation, Inc. to bridge the gap between Hollywood, show control and systems integration technology. Staying active in the themed attraction community, Alison worked in different capacities for the International Themed Entertainment Association and became Chair of their Social Committee and then as a Board Member for their Western Division where she helped set policies and standards for the different aspects of Themed Entertainment.
Daniel Jamele, Vice President/CTO
Co-founder of MediaMation, Inc. and chief systems designer, Dan Jamele is a visionary who continually designs products and technologies to advance both the science and art of show control. Exhibiting exceptional musical and technical ability at an early age and garnering numerous prestigious awards for achievements in recording and electronic music, Dan operated his own recording studio straight out of college. His pathway into the attractions industry began as pre-production and audio programmer for industry leader Landmark Entertainment in 1990. Frustrated with problems that he experienced in the existing show control systems Dan co- founded his own company, allowing him to pioneer enhancements to the MIDI-based technology that has led to the array of new entertainment technology available from MediaMation today including the patented Virtual Fountain™, ShowFlow® and VidShow™ products and the advancement of earlier motion simulator models to the current X4D® brand.
