Attending hundreds of events and conferences across the country and world over the past decade has enabled me to develop a diverse network, create many opportunities, and learn from influential leaders.

My current focus is on Event Integrity, a SaaS startup I co-founded where I do all things media, events, and community as the Chief Relationship Officer (CRO). At Event Integrity, we believe that by fostering an online community, education, and marketplace of business services, event professionals operating or working at Venue & Vendor businesses will have a space to collaborate and grow with industry peers.
I am passionate about events, startups, and solving problems. I believe in the #GiveFirst approach to entrepreneurial community interactions and providing value to another is something that fulfills me.
Follow me on my journey as I build a startup, travel the world, attend exclusive events, and meet some cool people.

Today show with kathy lee & hoda

The meeting magazine
I was featured in the “That’s Entertainment” segment of the May 2019 printed magazine issue. They included photos I provided from my experiences at events with awesome entertainment.
Good morning america
As part of Summer Stage in Central Park for a Sia concert, Good Morning America had Zachary Quinto, “Spock” in “Star Trek Beyond” interview on site and I was in the background. I got the last VIP ticket to be in this area through a Harry Potter group ironically called, The Group That Shall Not Be Named.
