I am posting here to explore leadership or other opportunities in event production and operations in and around NYC, the Tri State area or anywhere along the eastern seaboard or nationwide.

I have an extensive and established background concentrating on event production and operations that may be of interest.

My background encompasses five years as an event manager for a major international venue, six plus years as the technical director for a management company that operated a performing arts center along with a hospitality venue that could accommodate up to 3500 guests for private functions. Additionally there is a number of years of freelance event work as a tour director, event coordinator and transportation supervisor along with experience working production for film, television and live theater. And I have worked on many weddings, business conferences, product launches, private parties, grand openings and more.

There is a commitment to work safety as I have attained an OSHA 30 hour card, am certified for CPR and first aid, have specialized industry related training in arena and entertainment rigging; catering preparation and presentation to include safe handling procedures; floral design; lighting and sound installation. There is knowledge of team building and motivation, purchasing, inventory control, logistics, transportation services with an acumen for getting the most out of available resources. Have successfully developed strong and sustaining guest and vendor relationship. Have an immaculate enhanced Class A license and have safely driven combination vehicles and box trucks throughout the contiguous 48 states and parts of Canada.

Work well and remain calm in a hectic environment with a keen sense for on-site operational activities. Have worked at many prominent venues as well as many out-of-the-way locations nationwide. I am adept at customizing a unique location to fit a concept or design plan and have worked with clients/guests of all ilk.

Let's explore the possibility of developing a sustaining and long term relationship on a freelance, contract or otherwise basis which can be by gig, daily, weekly, seasonal or long term. Or, I may be just the ticket for the extra experience you may need in a large production or a reliable augment in an emergency or short-handed situation. If necessary I can be a road warrior and travel extensively.

Have a great sense of humor, am able to stand and walk for extended periods, lift and carry, with developed leadership capabilities and a nose to the grindstone ethic: I love to work hard in a team environment bringing ideas to fruition.

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm, it is with avid enthusiasm that I post this introduction: let's do great things together in the future.

I would welcome hearing from you and discussing a comfortable and sustaining win-win relationship.
