Event Producer

I have produced more than 150 major events including: business conferences, athletic events, speaker series, intimate forums, conversational salons, unique dinners, art openings, wilderness trips, international expeditions, and more!

I introduced 8 Meter Media as an umbrella over AdMonsters, OPS and several other conference brands in 2014, and it remains today as my conference and event production company.

I became a brand ambassador for SurfinSemFim in 2015 after joining their inaugural Iron Man long-distance kitesurfing expedition, and in 2016 I co-led my own group for our first SurfinSemFim Awesome trip from Prea to Atins on the north-east coast of Brazil.

I founded AdMonsters in 1999 to create a professional community in online media operations and technology and I sold that business to Access Intelligence in 2015. During that time we produced 100+ major conferences under the AdMonsters and OPS conference titles in the U.S., Europe, Brazil, Australia, and Singapore, and AdMonsters continues to serve a community of thousands of professionals around the world.

I joined EO, the Entrepreneurs Organization in 2009, and I was privileged to serve as President of the San Francisco chapter in 2014-2015. During my time with EO I have facilitated and produced many events, including speaker series, peer-to-peer learning sessions, EO Forums, and special events like the Golden Gate swim that kicked off EO SF’s 25th Anniversary on September 15, 2016.

I also founded a unique group called Flow Forum, which incorporates physical flow into the EO Forum format. Flow Forum began in 2014 and continues to thrive as a regional EO forum.

I joined the Battery in 2014 and I am proud to have hosted several events as a member including several evening salons as well as a session I that co-produced with my friend Yosh Han at Camp Battery in September 2016.

In 2010 I was part of the production of a unique creative event and dinner for 200+ in New York called Do You Want Gold. This event was a fantastic example of the collaboration of art and business, and a unique and wonderful experience for everyone who participated.
