I believe in the power of human interaction and creative media to connect people to innovative ideas and brands. I combine event strategy, and interactive technologies to drive consumer engagement with meaningful ideas and brands. Currently based out of San Francisco, CA - I am building the national event and partner strategy for Galvanize - a tech education company that gives access and an easy on-ramp for anyone with the ambition and aptitude to be an entrepreneur, engineer, or data scientist. I thrive on experiencing diverse world cultures, nature, music and adventure. I am a world traveler and have spent significant time abroad in Europe, Asia and Africa teaching English, volunteering in rural farming villages, creating international music festivals, and hiking both Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Everest Base Camp. Specialties: event/festival creation and production, new business initiatives, strategic brand messaging, social entrepreneurship, movement marketing, cross-sector partnership development, multifaceted project management, and project ROI reporting.
