A few examples projects I've worked on
Assignment: Collaborate with a steering committee to create a new Fall-kickoff social event for young professionals.
Outcome: Transformed a blank event space to a Bavarian beer hall with beer, brats, pretzels and snacks. Because the committee wanted a structured way to meet other young professionals, developed a youthful, fun team bingo competition that allowed 50+ to interact and have fun.
Assignment: Elevate the annual 5-day staff and family conference (170+ attendees) to an experience that parents and kids would enjoy and anticipate the whole year.
Outcome: Created new age-appropriate programs for children and teenagers run by teams of dedicated volunteers. Introduced a family field day competition and talent show. Parents are now sure their children are well attended when they are in meetings. Staff kids say the conference is one of the highlights of their summer.
Assignment: Upgrade the flagship collegiate student conference in appeal, quality, and reach.
Outcome: Drove rebranding and oversaw new social media outreach. Secured state-of-the art production team and recruited compelling speakers resulting in positive attendee feedback.
Urban Cowboy Party
Assignment: Create a unique birthday experience for native Texan in NYC.
Outcome: Ideated and realized an urban cowboy-themed event with real mechanical bull at the Ace Hotel. The only mechanical bull ever at the hotel. The staff were amused. Attendees had a blast.

Assignment: Restructure key internal conference to improve efficacy and staff feedback.
Outcome: Collaborated with key leaders to shift conference to primarily professional development. Secured speakers and created workshops that met felt needs of employees and furthered the goals of the organization. Put in place informal social opportunities to build camaraderie. Staff were better equipped and were grateful for opportunities to learn and grow.
