I have over 16 years of experience as an events and marketing professional spanning a number of industries including fashion
and luxury, entertainment and publishing.
My love for events started at Showtime Networks in the Sales & Marketing Department, where I assisting a team of Point of Sale professionals in producing creative incentives to drive call center operators to sell the Showtime brand.
In 1998, I moved from Los Angeles to New York, where I landed a job as an events professional at Travel + Leisure magazine. Collaborating with many magazine partners and developing and producing events of all shapes & sizes across the globe, I fostered my inner creativity and grew my skills as an events professional.
In 2002, I started a career with Louis Vuitton as Special Events Manager, based both in New York and Los Angeles. During my five year tenure with LV, I honed my skils in all aspects of fashion marketing and communications and produced events across North America, including luncheons, large gala dinners, live performances, multi-day sales meetings, award ceremonies, and cocktail receptions. In my tenure, I was responsible for executing some of the highest grossing store events and most widely covered image events in company history.
In late 2006, I was recruited by GUESS? Inc., to head up their Public Relations and Special Events Department. During my three years with the company, I built a multi-million dollar department from the ground up, leading a team of six professionals in both New York and L.A. In this role, I lead all external communications and events for the company, while partnering with Advertising, Ecommerce, Visual Merchandising and the Retail Marketing Department to develop programs that reflected the brand and drove sales.
In January of 2010, I left the comforts of corporate America and went out on my own, focusing on my passion for event production and design. With my deep understanding of a number of industries, particularly the luxury fashion culture, along with my love of working with others and my unique ability to develop, communicate and execute initiatives that align with the vision of my clients, I have the confidence and know-how to help others reach their event goals.
Currently, I have produced high profile events and experiences for Hermes, Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, 7 For All Mankind, Heritage Auctions, as well as a number of other clients in the private sector. For a list of my career projects, click here.
