Three Event Items I Cannot Live Without: Radio shoulder holster, my combat boots & zip ties
I am extremely lucky to have found my passion for events early in life. I have used this burning fire to build a solid foundation, and from this I have learned to thrive within the event production environment. My positive, professional and energetic personality has afforded me the opportunity to wear many hats within the event world, and I have developed a wide array of experience throughout my years in the industry. However, it is in the roles of Operations, Production, and Team Building where I am able to shine the brightest.
I have become a key contributing member of the California music festival community, as well as the Burning Man community. Here I have acquired a well-rounded knowledge of coordination, logistics, bookings, artist relations, program building, sound and lighting. I have been able to take all of these skills and apply them to many other facets of my life, both personal and professional. I have also created, produced, and directed my own music festival called Sanctuary. We recently completed our sixth production of Sanctuary, and it is awe inspiring to see how the event is ever evolving. From a music based dance event, to an artistic spectacle to behold, to a workshop-centric retreat, the event has developed a life of it’s own.
an intuitive ability to put together amazingly functional teams. I pride myself on my ability to make clear coordinated decisions on the fly in potentially stressful situations. The bottom line is I love people, and I have a skill for bringing them together. Events build community, and community is essential for a higher quality of life.
