Lyra Letourneau, Creative Director

My name is Lyra Letourneau, I’ve been programming laser shows since I was 14 years old. If you’ve ever browsed YouTube for laser shows, then you’ve likely seen my work. I was recently brought onto the Pangolin Team as the company’s Creative Director.

One of my main goals here at Pangolin is to help bring a user’s perspective to the development process, as I have tons of real world experience across a variety of different laser display concepts and applications.

I will also be working to help improve Pangolin’s support, education and training divisions. This part of my role will entail the creation of new tutorial videos, more detailed documentation including new manuals, as well as offering training services and seminars for clients, to help them get the most from their Pangolin products.

I am confident that with my unique experience and perspective, I can help Pangolin continue to create cutting-edge technologies, that push our industry forward.

My personal goal at Pangolin is to help improve the experience of pangolin clients worldwide, focusing on improving products, increasing educational awareness, and ultimately bringing Pangolin closer to its customers.

If you ever happen to see me at trade shows, Pangolin PUGs, or anywhere else, you can always feel free to ask me any technical or creative questions you might have!

Marissa Hanley, Administrative Manager

My name is Marissa Hanley and I’m the new Administrative Manager (Admin) here at Pangolin. I’m here to make sure that the production and customer experience are streamlined from beginning to end. There is no problem too tangled for me to unravel, and I will stop at nothing to get your problem solved.

I joined Pangolin because I have a soft spot in my heart for all things optic. I want to bring that passion of turning hard science into something beautiful, to the laser industry as a whole, spreading photons and wonder around the globe.

Here is a fun fact about me, I was on Jeopardy, and apparently Alex Trebek thinks I swear too much.


James Meeks, Shipping Manager

My name is James Meeks, I am the Shipping and Warehouse Manager for Pangolin. As a part of my job, and goals, I ensure that every order arrives in a timely and secure manner to meet the needs of our clients.

My background is in aerospace engineering and I studied this in great detail at the University of Central Florida. I’ve always found lasers to be very interesting, and gravitated to the opportunity of working with a company at the cutting edge of this new technology. Originally I started in the ScannerMAX division, but given my extensive background in warehouse management (prior to working here), it soon became apparent that this was a great role for me. Since taking over the position, I’ve streamlined Pangolin’s logistics processes, and helped find new ways to save our clients significant amounts in shipping costs.

Fun fact about me… I am a certified sky diver, and am also getting my scuba certification now, in preparation for an upcoming dive in Australia.

My goal here at Pangolin is to help improve the overall support process and client experience. Ensuring Pangolin customer’s get the most from their products, and interactions with the organization.

I will be working on software and hardware testing, documentation, as well as helping with client questions and support related needs.
