event management

When I’m not producing for the camera or the stage, I challenge my producing skills by curating experiences for the moment. Event management allows me to wear many hats while collaborating with various artists/experts to bring communities together. Whether it be a humble wrap party or a premiere launch fest, I will forever find joy in organizing once in a lifetime moments for everlasting memories.

I became a volunteer for the film festival in 2012 and rose into the house manager position in 2016, where I organized festival screenings for 2 years. With my grass roots experience, I was able to provide adequate support and guidance to all festival involvement. The Savannah Film Festival & aTVfest are incredible festivals that allow rising creative professionals opportunities to gain experience from the best the industry has to offer.

volunteer → special events coordinator → coordinator of student activities

As the CSA of SCAD, I facilitate all programs pertaining to student involvement. This includes but is not limited to orientation, student club programming, and organizing large scale programs with the Student Activities Council (SAC). SAC is a student run programming organization I have the honor of mentoring. Through this program, I teach student employees how programming skills can enhance their creative professionalism.

I champion cross collaborations between departments and community vendors, believing that community involvement is the key to a synergetic event experience. This result is best met by learning the language and timelines that make these elements operate at their best potential. This position taught me the power of collaboration: there simply is no whole without the sum of its parts.
