For the last decade my work in the arts and culture sector has ranged from artist management, consulting, fundraising, and producing at organizations with a wide range of budgets and programmatic focus. From conference planning and execution at @OPERA America, to roles at several festivals including @Opera Omaha’s inaugural ONE Festival, and @Opera Philadelphia’s O18 Festival. I've managed a roster of internationally renowned artists, produced concerts, digital events and music videos, and built out sustainable business infrastructure for artists and performing arts organizations alike.
