1. How did you get started in the events industry?
My first glance at events was during my internship at a boat charter company in Boston. I loved how much detail went into the planning and execution of all different types of events, and knew it was something I wanted to keep learning about.
2. In the next 2-5 years, what do you see changing about the events industry?
Along with most of the world, I think we will see technology continue to integrate deeply into our events. From remote speakers to the automation of conference registration, we have only just begun to see the possibilities of technology in our industry.
3. What is something about working in events that would surprise people?
I am continuously amazed by the level of collective brainpower we use for our planning process. Our entire team works together to hash out all aspects of our decisions to ensure that clients get the best possible solution to any element of their event.
4. What is your favorite event venue and why?
My favorite venue so far has been Copper Canyon at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was a façade of an old Western town set in the middle of a 5-Star resort. We loved that it was able to tie in elements of Old-West culture with authentic music, games and décor.
5. What is your favorite thing about working at Castle?
I have always loved that we can come to work and have fun each day. We all love what we do so traveling around the world to see all our hard work come together makes for some really memorable shared experiences.
