Creative Strategy and Event Design Manager
Around the Office You’re known for: Lover of thrifting. Macrame maker. Matcha Enthusiast.
Event Experience you will never forget: I was tasked to get some extra milk for the chef preparing dinner at our off-site event which was a unique Steam Punk experience for our client. In true event fashion, I only had about 20 minutes to run to the store and turn with the milk before doors opened. On my way back, one of the gallons fall on to the floor and busted open. It didn’t seem that bad until I opened my car door the next day and the smell of rotten milk was overwhelming. It didn’t help that it was summer (Vegas summer!) and no matter what I did the smell was hard to get out. So, for about a year my car smelled like rotten milk.
Las Vegas secret you are willing to share: Vegas is constantly growing with new restaurants and venues popping up on the strip and downtown, but some of the best places to try are within the surrounding communities. Like La Strega, FireFly, and Shanghai Taste.
