I’m a bit of an anomaly in certain respects.
First, I was born and raised in Atlanta. You don’t find that a lot in a town full of transplants. Second, while my areas of expertise might not sound “creative” (from Excel and Google Sheets to general project and company management), I happen to be one of the most creative people in the company. Why?
Because clients are always wanting the most elaborate event as possible, and it’s my job to deliver, while also staring down the reality of a budget.
From “bucket list” activations, festival-like atmospheres, and all the people and chaos that events can bring, it’s my job to look for the best deal, the best venue--the best everything--under budget and on time.
And since 2009, for clients like Coca-Cola, McDonalds, The Home Depot, Diageo, Oracle, NetApp, Blackberry, Oracle Team USA and the Golden State Warriors, I’ve enjoyed doing just that.
