I’ve been working in events for about five years. I started as a volunteer for a year, then as the Trash Sorting Manager for SummerCamp Music Festival in 2013 as my first paid gig. From there I delved into Parking/Mobility Operations and held positions at Rootwire, Gratifly, Wakarusa, Phases of the Moon, Mysteryland USA, etc. I like Parking and everything that comes with it.
In Chicago, where I’m based out of, I help build the sites of several yearly street festivals as well as the Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza every Winter. As of the last couple years I’ve tried to open myself up to production builds as often as possible, having worked on Mamby on the Beach, Freaky Deaky, SummerCamp Music Festival helping build trussing, scaffolding and the like. Nowadays I book my own gigs and FOLLOW THE WORK.
