While there, he attended training classes for various AV manufacturers, learning all aspects of their products and capabilities. 

After realizing his passion for the industry, Sterle decided to pursue home electronic installations full time and joined a local company that specialized in home AV and custom installs.

In 2000, Sterle joined the Las Vegas show “EFX” at MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, learning more about professional AV gear and installations within commercial environments. Sterle left the show a year later and began planning and building the foundation to start his own company, and in 2003 launched ADS.
