I have been interested in events since I was a child, watching my family throw parties for our birthdays, our youth group, and even producing concerts. In addition to assisting my family with many events, I spent a large part of my college career producing many events including Open Mic- the largest event on campus. As President of FLOW, the Poetry and Spoken Word Club, I led a creative advertising campaign that attracted even more attendees and introduced Outdoor Open Mic, leading our Executive Board to its second consecutive honor as Organization of the Year.
After spending years attending and presenting at conferences and other large scale events, I went back to school to obtain a Professional Diploma in Meeting and Convention Management at New York University's School of Professional Studies. I later worked as an Events Consultant with Dominican Youth Movement USA (an organization whose conferences I previously presented at) and introduced and produced the Santacruzan, a traditional event for the Filipino-American community of Long Island.
