Arabian Prince Named Creative Director of Sonomax?

Arabian Prince Named Creative Director of Sonomax®

Arabian Prince, Sonomax Technologies Creative Director

Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) January 06, 2012

Sonomax Technologies, Inc. (TSXV: SHH) welcomes new Creative Director K. R. Nazel, a.k.a. Arabian Prince, West Coast music pioneer, DJ, producer and founding member of the groundbreaking rap group N.W.A. and Stones Throw label to their technology family. With a career spanning 30 thirty years in the music industry and over 15 fifteen years in 3D animation, film and video game production, Arabian Prince has joined Sonomax Technologies to help create, design, and market Sonomax’s custom-fitted earphones, eers™, and the accompanying SonoFit™ technology.

“We are very fortunate to have been able to attract a talented and hard-working individual like Arabian, who brings his wealth of experience and contacts to not only our line of eers™ custom earphones, but also our SonoFit™ fitting technology which remains the company’s core focus,” said Nick Laperle, President and CEO of Sonomax Technologies.

“The Source, a 700 store Canadian National Retailer, has enthusiastically endorsed our product by launching Sculpted eers in their stores across the country during the holiday season. This acknowledgement by The Source of the demand for in ear applications by consumers further validates SonoFit as the premier fitting platform for any of the 300 million earphones sold globally under various brands; the opportunity upon which Sonomax will be leveraging it’s licensing model. It was therefore time to conclude a deal with an experienced marketer such as Arabian Prince.”

Mr. Laperle continued, “I’m very happy to report that Arabian’s involvement will greatly enhance the success of these two initiatives.”

Arabian has already commenced work with the Sonomax® team to redesign the eers™ product look and sound. “I listen and work on music everyday, so I wanted the sound and fit that I use on stage, and when I DJ to carry over to eers™. I have used custom in-ear monitors for years, but there has never been a cost effective solution for the general public until now,” said Nazel. “Custom in-ear monitors can take weeks to make and cost a thousand dollars or more, but with the SonoFit™ system and eers™ custom earbuds, the general public can get a one-of-a-kind custom fit in just 5 minutes right out of the box for less than 25% of the price.”

Currently, Arabian is working with gaming companies to create new gaming custom fitted earphones for the hundreds of millions of players who game for extended hours thus requiring a more comfortable, advanced listening experience. “The SonoFit™ system opens up the door for new technology partnerships. We are also working on applications for military, racing, and hearing protection, as well as selling the fitting systems to other earphone manufacturers. I am pleased to be a part of such an amazing product, and company,” added Nazel.

About Sonomax Technologies, Inc.

Sonomax® is a leader in the product development, research, and licensing of in-ear technologies with more than 50 patents and trademarks worldwide. Sculpted eers is the first product to feature SonoFit, Sonomax’s universal fitting system for any in-ear application.

Gina Reiss-Wilchins Appointed Director of the United Nations Foundation?s ?Girl Up? Campaign

Gina Reiss-Wilchins Appointed Director of the United Nations Foundation’s “Girl Up” Campaign

The United Nations Foundation announced the appointment of Gina Reiss-Wilchins as Director of its Girl Up campaign.

Washington, DC (Vocus/PRWEB) March 22, 2011

The United Nations Foundation announced today the appointment of Gina Reiss-Wilchins as Director of its Girl Up campaign (http://www.GirlUp.org) – an innovative program to build and maintain a constituency dedicated to improving the lives of the world’s hardest-to-reach girls.

There are currently more than 600 million adolescent girls living the developing world – part of the largest youth generation in history. But less than two cents of every development aid dollar goes to programs specifically helping these girls. Girl Up supporters are encouraged to give a “High Five” to girls in developing countries by donating $ 5 or more that can help provide girls with such basic needs as access to school supplies, clean water, life-saving health services, safety from violence and more.

UN Foundation CEO Kathy Calvin said, “Gina joins Girl Up at a time in which her experience and energy will perfectly fit the mission of the campaign. The number of supporters has grown tremendously in recent months, and Gina is the ideal director to continue expanding that growth and turning support into action on behalf of girls around the world.”

The “for girls, by girls” campaign mobilizes American girls to raise funds and awareness for UN programs that support the millions of adolescent girls growing up in developing countries. Through Girl Up’s support, these girls will have the opportunity to become educated, healthy, safe, counted and positioned to be the next generation of leaders.

“I am very excited and honored to be working with the United Nations Foundation and the Girl Up Campaign,” Reiss-Wilchins remarked. “Girls across the world have dreams and goals just like my daughter does here in America. They want to go to school, be safe, stay healthy and have a chance to grow up and be whatever they can be. I understand firsthand the importance of raising the next generation of global leaders and philanthro-teens in America. I am looking forward to leading this campaign and helping to build a movement that American youth have created in rallying behind Girl Up.”

Before joining the UN Foundation’s Girl Up program, Ms. Reiss-Wilchins served as Executive Director of TrueChild, an action tank devoted to bringing gender transformative approaches to US policy and programmatic work that challenges narrow, traditional ideas of masculinity and femininity and promotes gender equity for girls. Prior to TrueChild, she served as Managing Director of the Gender Public Advocacy Coalition, growing it from a small group of volunteers in New York City to a national organization with a budget of almost $ 2mm, headquarters in Washington, DC and a staff of 15. While there, she created a chapter system that was adopted by college youth advocates on 104 campuses in 26 states. Her 20+ years of advocacy and non-profit experience includes serving as Action Vice-President of NOW/NJ and founding member of Equality Federation.

About Girl Up

Girl Up, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation, gives American girls the opportunity to channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for programs of the United Nations that help some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls. Through Girl Up’s support, girls have the opportunity to become educated, healthy, safe, counted and positioned to be the next generation of leaders. Campaign supporters are encouraged to give a “High Five” to girls in developing countries by donating $ 5 or more to provide girls with such basic needs as access to school supplies, clean water, life-saving health services, safety from violence and more. Founding campaign partners include MTV Networks, National Coalition of Girls’ Schools, Women’s National Basketball Association, Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, Girls Inc., and Camp Fire USA.
