Special Olympics World Games Los Angeles 2015
Venue and Operations Director, Opening & Closing Ceremonies
January 2015 — Present
Event work is in-the-moment, physical, quick and unpredictable and serving as Venue Director for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games Opening & Closing Ceremonies in LA this summer was no exception! This was a beautiful opportunities to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a group of exceptional athletes ready to compete at their best. Integrating a team of Senior leaders in Production, Operations, Hospitality, Security, Venue Development and Sponsorship was a unique and welcomed challenge. Working in tandem with ESPN to deliver the first live televised broadcast of the Opening Ceremonies for the Special Olympics Organization successfully while welcoming a visit by First Lady Michelle Obama was an event night to remember. I am grateful for the opportunity to have helped change the perception of Intellectual Disabilities throughout the World little by little...one great event at a time.
