Project Manager, Live Stream / Audio Team
I started my professional career as a Network Engineer and Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer. Being an Entrepreneur, I went to work for myself doing large Network installations. In between projects I would work for AVMG as a Speaker Ready Technician in the early 2000's. I learned Audio Visual equipment and advanced in all areas of Live Events. Speaker Ready, Graphics Operator, Audio, and Projection skills have led me to leadership opportunities. After 20 years of experience of managing and leading many of the largest events, Covid put an end to a successful business. Cadmium provided a new home and place to utilize the skills I have obtained. I thrive in Customer Service and going above and beyond to deliver a superior product.
Live Stream Project Manager
Born and raised in coastal New Jersey, I graduated from Salisbury University and moved to Maryland in 2011. I spent the first 10 years of my career in accounting and finance at Fortune 500 companies. To combat my high-stress career, I started training to compete in triathlons, and eventually started a business producing triathlons and other racing events. We later specialized in event technology – delivering real-time race results, same-day photos, and video clips for over 1000 events throughout the US and abroad.
Being married with two young children, we decided to settle down and sell the business, and I'm extremely grateful to have found Cadmium, an event technology company just 6 miles down the road! My family enjoys RV travel, hiking, yoga, swimming, surfing – anything outdoors! I'm looking forward to being a Project Manager and serving clients in a high-paced, growing environment.”
