Live Journalism + Event Production

From working at 14 East Magazine to The 19th (and freelancing with the Chicago Headline Club), my work has always existed at the intersection of journalism, events and public service. From ideation to the finest details, I move comfortably between all parts of event production.

Project Management

Coordinate events from inception to execution, including deadline setting and making task lists to communication, problem solving, cross team collaboration and day of management.

Venue + Vendors

Identify and secure venues + hotel blocks. Search for vendors — ideally women, LGBTQ+ and/or BIPOC owned — negotiate agreement/pricing. Lead venue and vendor coordination.

Content Production

Work with video and audience teams to develop ways to extend the life of our events, from turning into written stories on our site or newsletter takeaways to social-first video content and interviews.
