I'm a freelance professional in the music festival, street festival, and special events industries. Though primarily based in Chicago, I'm happy to travel nationally or internationally for a good gig.Through my career, I've had the opportunity to work a variety of job functions, including: production management, venue operations, event planning, street team promotions, beverage operations, stage management, bar management, sponsorship, and operations management.
There are a few companies I maintain an ongoing working relationship with to complete projects as needed. They include the following:
