Founder / Owner

Planned and produced entertainment events on a variety of scales in locations across Southern Ohio.

Established the Paper City Music Festival in Chillicothe, OH as a significant annual cultural highlight. Oversaw every aspect of production, including: site selection and build out; crew selection and hiring; bringing in vendors; and contracting local, regional, and national artists to fill three days of live music and comedy.

Produced a series of smaller Paper City events during the months leading up to festival to raise awareness and involve artists whose schedules did not line up with festival timing.

Raised funding via sponsor contributions by articulating the aims, impacts, and budgets of the festival through concise, straightforward presentations and information design.

Founded the non-profit Paper City Project, Inc to increase awareness of the arts in Southern Ohio by working with other respected groups such as the Rotary Club.
