Here’s the role I relish in an organization:  Creating structure and order around a creative business endeavor; I enjoy turning limitations into opportunities for new thinking and new ways of problem-solving.  I thrive at the balance point between control and chaos.

I like work that involves organizing, researching, planning, calendaring, fixing, writing, editing, critiquing, and presenting.  I have experience developing project deliverables, budgets, and managing all the components through to completion.  Because of my work in education, hospitality, and marketing, I always have my mind on the project’s impact on an audience, as well as how it engages the players involved in production.  I enjoy interfacing with clients, coworkers, and vendors and am adept at problem-solving.
