Producer + program director
Health 2.0 promotes, showcases, and catalyzes new technologies in health care through a worldwide series of conferences.
Through intensive market research I programmed mainstage and breakout sessions with keynote speakers, panelists, and live technology demos. Each industry expert went through an intensive speaker coaching process with me and my team. Onsite I acted as stage manager and speaker liaison, effectively supporting each speaker from invitation to final bow.

TEDxPortland is an independently organized TED event. It has a rich history of spreading ideas, sharing knowledge and building community in Portland.
As a member of the leadership team at TEDxPortland, I value the creative collaboration between artist and myself. Together we craft performances around message, song selection, visual assets, and all supporting backline elements. My style of artist management extends to the greenroom experience and taking care of their VIP guests as well.
As a speaker coach, I work with our speakers to develop their narrative in crisp, impactful language. We work together on delivery style, visual support, and even wardrobe selection.

production director + speaker coach
The annual Responsive Conference explores work in the 21st Century, and was created by a handful of humans who identify emerging trends in how work gets done.
As Production Director, I was responsible for creating a white glove experience for each speaker. This involved a customized approach to speaker coaching on content, delivery, and presentation design, as well as full AV support. I advised on the program structure, designed the look and feel of the stage, and managed every on-stage moment across the two-day live show.
