With The Oncenter since...
2010

Favorite Event Worked...
There are too many amazing events to name, but the most memorable has to be the grand opening of the Lakeview Amphitheater in 2015 with Miranda Lambert. The stress levels were extreme, but our amazing team came together to successfully open the venue with mere days between the completion of construction and the opening of the gates to the general public. It was monumental and a true testament to our love of the industry and commitment to providing amazing experiences to the CNY community.

Anything with Ludacris, but I love a wide range of music from the Everly Brothers to The Supremes to N*SYNC to J.Lo and almost everything in between. I'm always listening to music.

Elephants, but they're too big for the house - so dogs.
