Chris Vecchione, Senior Vice President / National Sales Manager

Chris has maintained the position of TOP income producer (sales) in each year and position since graduation from college, even after taking on greater roles of management along the way. A believer in long hours and dedication to the bottom line, he believes Second Place is LAST PLACE.


A steadfast believer in relationship marketing, he utilizes strong client relationships to expand the scope of the sales initiative. Coin-operated amusement and games distribution relationships built over 25 + years still produce sales and provide Chris with hundreds of potential "relationship marketers", especially in the greater Philadelphia region, but also all over the United States. As a contributing writer for several trade magazines (Replay, Playmeter, Vending Times) Chris has kept his name visible to the entire nationwide community of coin machine manufacturers, distributors, operators and locations. These locations are mostly hospitality businesses, including many chain restaurant/tavern accounts such as Burger King, McDonalds, Tilted Kilt, Dave & Busters, Friendly's, Red Robin as well as a host of bowling centers, skating rinks and other high-traffic entertainment and drinking/dining establishments.


The perceived magnitude of 3D Digital out-of-home advertising is of great appeal to Chris, who envisions utilizing his vast network of locations and industry “tradesters” to help grow the 3D business rapidly and profitably.

Patricia Taylor, Operations Manager

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Patricia always knew her life would somehow revolve around or involve in some way the field of Entertainment.

 Working toward a career in the entertainment field, she entered college with a major in Communications. She paid her way through school by working a few odd jobs; Assistant to the Music Department’s Publicist, writing for the campus newspaper, and coaching Junior Varsity Girls Tennis at the high school from which she graduated, all while being a full-time college student.

 After graduating from Cal Poly Pomona with a Bachelors of Science in Communication / with an emphasis in Journalism, Patricia began her career in entertainment production when she accepted a position at the premiere television entertainment newsmagazine, Entertainment Tonight.  She worked her way up to Production Coordinator before embarking on quite a few freelance gigs, from travel coordinator to casting associate to associate producer of a high-rated HGTV DIY program.

 Patricia joined Elixir 3D and Elixir Entertainment as Executive Assistant to CEO John Kuri.  Working with the Autostereoscopic 3D technology and content opened up an entirely different world of possibilities. She was in contact with everyone from independent contractors operating as company representatives to U.S. Governors and Presidents of International Corporations to White House Press Secretaries.  In her work with Elixir, Patricia is able to stay creative assisting in developing powerpoint presentations, conducting informational research along with contract creation and even developing a Documentary Script about the Navy’s Blue Angels.

 She characterizes herself as a typical Californian who loves the great outdoors; from hiking all over the Angeles National Forest, to jumping out of planes solo in the accelerated Free Fall program in San Diego alongside the U.S. Navy’s Leap Frogs, to playing and coaching tennis, and hanging out for breakfast along Venice Beach’s famed boardwalk.  In her spare time, she enjoys writing and volunteers with a military focused non-profit twice a month and at special events throughout the year.
