My “production life” started for me in High School, in a small studio in White Plains. As the intern, I was moving ‘old school’ video monitors and studio lights in heels. Although the subject matter was a little dry (continuing education credits for accounting), I knew that I had found my passion. The internship turned into a job, which turned into a freelance career running prompter, gripping, and creating graphics. Aside from corporate gigs I worked on independent films. It was during an indie screening where I realized how gratifying it is to have people applaud and react to projects I worked on. What I love about event and video production today is the pace, the one-on-one client partnerships, the travel, the variety of content, and an audience reacting to our work. But this ‘event life’ has some other perks – traveling to new cities, great food, and like so many on our team, new sushi finds around the globe. Favorite location: New Orleans – Love the music. Favorite sushi place: Zenbu in La Jolla. Lesson Learned (while on a Legend gig) in Taipei: After airline lost my luggage I learned the bare essentials for survival…toothpaste, deodorant, wallet, one change of clothes, phone and charger.
