Around the office, you’re known for: Dad jokes and stories of my kids that keep everyone laughing. I also maintain a balancing act of knowing when to let my team put their talents to use, and knowing when to call upon my experience to shepherd the creative planning process.
Meeting or event experience you’ll never forget: Standing on the roof of a convention hotel in Anaheim with a bird’s eye view of airport departures for 9,000 guests. Watching waves of 1,200 guests at a time roll out of the parking lot in a seamless caravan was operational bliss.
The one SoCal secret I’m willing to share… The Largo at the Coronet in West Hollywood. An intimate 300 seat theater, you can catch comedy headliners like Patton Oswalt or Zach Galifianakis practicing new material with cameos from other famous comedic friends. A side-splitting night will run you $30.
