- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing varies on the size of event, location and coordination needs, including entertainment type, catering style, decor, photography, etc. Package deals are always available.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to know what the customer's needs are for the event--entertainment, decor, photography or other? I also like to know the kind of space they have or are looking for. This helps me picture my "canvas" that I have to work with as a decorator and an entertainer. And most importantly, I want to work within people's budgets. You shouldn't have to be a millionaire to put on a good party! As for event planning, once I have dimensions or photos of the space, I like to meet with the client to do a site visit and discuss their vision. I offer photos and ideas of past events I have managed to help inspire the design process.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Bachelor of Arts in Performance and Cultural Studies as well as professional Production Management in theatre, live music and corporate events. I have assisted and managed events anywhere from a small theatre to a stadium. Stage management and all types of grip/stagehand work have been a constant throughout my professional career. This diverse skill set offers a keen eye for detail and organized planning.
