Live events

My career has taken me to so many different live events, where each was unique yet Murphy’s Law was always the prime directive. Maddening, yet it led to experience in almost every event job.

Which produced a truly valuable skill: understanding & prioritizing the needs of a show and communicating that to the people handling all the moving parts. 

That and a lifetime of learning Zen & The Art Of The Live Event has given me the skill set to plan, promote, produce, host, write, and direct almost any live show.

Host - MC

Officiant

​

From solemn to controlled mayhem, I’ve kept my hand on the microphone and steered well over 1k live events where they needed to go. On stage or off, well rehearsed or “I hope this works”, posh to primitive, events just work better with a host.

And as an ordained minister, I can legally officiate weddings too!

​

Some people don’t know the difference between what directors and producers do. And in practice, the lines can blur. Here’s an easy guide: if you don’t know if you need a producer, you do and now. I can help achieve your vision with less hassle and expense. 

Already have a producer? Excellent! Point them my way (or vice versa) for directing, audio, stage management, or whatever they need done and done well.

Writing - pr

scripting

​

Events with the best results have one thing in common: everybody knows what’s coming and they’re excited.

Achieving that goal is trickier but starts with effective communication to both your prospective guests and show staff. With a background in PR and advertising, I write releases that get noticed, marketing messages that move tickets, and concise scripts that keep everybody on the same literal (or digital) page.
