Running away and joining the circus is always something your parents joke about when you're a kid, but when it became a reality for me, it solidified my feeling that the event industry was where I belonged. This industry has taken me some crazy places from working with Cirque du Soleil in Toronto, to a 10,000 person yoga class in Central Park, to festivals on mountains and festivals for foodies! Having been heavily involved in productions such as the Opening Ceremony for the Pan American Games, Brewery & the Beast, Tall Tree Music Festival, Rifflandia Music Festival and many others has allowed me to learn and develop skills that I am now excited to bring to the table at Wet Ape. The fact that I get to continue doing this as a career is a highlight it's self!
When I'm not working, you can find me swinging lefts and rights - boxing up a storm at the gym, biking around on my nobel steed of a Miele, or nerding out over spreadsheets and coding.
Why the event industry?
Everything I love to do presents it's self in beautiful harmony in this industry. I get to organize everything from spreadsheets and people to sea-cans of inventory. I can be in the office 9-5 one day then on site lifting things and grinding it out with the team the next! Every day is excitingly stressful and keeps me on my toes, constantly adapting to different environments, people, and places. There is no question this is the industry I belong in.
