I am an accomplished event producer in New York City and I focus primarily on art-based immersive productions that engage audiences and inspire joy and wonder.
I produced a lauded immersive dinner theater show, LUST, in NYC for three years (2016-2019). LUST was based on a piece from art history by Meret Oppenheim and had an underlying social cause that I'm happy to say caused a wide cultural shift: our purpose was to model enthusiastic, affirmative, and continuing consent in a fun and playful way to educate audiences and expand public knowledge about consent. I'm happy to say our consent policies were adopted by many venues and shows in New York and the amount of press the show received widened the national conversation about consent.
Now I'm moving on to my next project, which will be much larger and require a more permanent venue in Orlando, Florida. The new project will be an all-ages show and is focused on being accessible and enjoyable to all humans while teaching emotional inte...

Now I'm moving on to my next project, which will be much larger and require a more permanent venue in Orlando, Florida. The new project will be an all-ages show and is focused on being accessible and enjoyable to all humans while teaching emotional intelligence and the importance of human connection and empathy.
I started producing events in 2008 while I was attending graduate school at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. My main private client is the art collector Allison Sarofim. I have produced her infamous Halloween parties for the past 12 years. I also co-founded the first fire entertainment company in the country, Flambeaux Fire. We created an immersive fire fairy tale, The Calling, which is being optioned for Broadway right now and my former partner, Flambeaux, is spearheading that project and I am taking 25% of the profits from the book being optioned.
My career has consisted of producing hundreds of high-end private and corporate events over the past 12 years as well as LUST, which was my most profitable venture thus far and I funded myself with my savings from producing private events.
