UPDATE: Currently we find ourselves in new territory with live events so I want to make sure you know that as our industry pivots to virtual events you can count on my experience and knowledge in this area.  As a producer for virtual events I work closely with the creative and strategic team to ensure that the message is delivered in the best possible format. I look to align both the content as well as the context. I understand that while objectives and KPI’s may remain the same how they are delivered can be very different both virtually and contextually. The platform is key not just from a technical standpoint but also from an audience experience perspective. I also strongly believe in assembling the best production and technical team to ensure flawless execution. Lastly, measurement is very important, so I’ll discover what success means to each stakeholder and how we capture and report that data.


In addition, I am a certified COVID-19 Compliance Officer for any onsite program elements.
