Jeff Sobel Chief Technology Officer
Jeff began work as a sound engineer in 1997, producing several albums for indie artists and working as both a house and touring live sound engineer before joining the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus in 2002 as an on-board engineer. After spending 3 years touring continuously with the Bus, producing original content every day with young students, he directed a complete rebuild of the Lennon Bus studios, the evolution of which he had been guiding during his tenure as onboard engineer. In 2007, Jeff designed the all new Lennon Bus, creating an environment and system design ideally suited to the Bus’ unique mission, serving as project manager as well as systems integrator. Jeff then designed Lennon Bus Europe, an entirely custom-built vehicle launched in Liverpool in 2013, handling international project management to bring the vision to life. Jeff manages the Lennon Bus studios, directing its technical vision as well as shepherding its daily well-being while training and supporting its onboard engineers. He is focused on developing and integrating solutions which enhance the Bus’ capabilities, its staff’s processes, and visitors’ experience.
Jeff lives in Los Angeles and travels often. In addition to his work with the Lennon Bus, Jeff works with interesting startups and organizations. He spends his spare time supporting causes he believes in.
