What I do: I lead the amazing Shoflo team as we bring new and innovative ways for event managers and production teams to collaborate on projects. Shoflo is software for event managers to coordinate the build of show rundowns, schedules and more.

How I got here: I have been starting projects and companies my whole life. I freelanced as a live-video director for corporate events for 10 years. I experienced the problem Shoflo solves firsthand, as I would receive paper-based rundowns, make my edits and then someone would drop a new paper version on my desk. I said, “There has to be a better way.” Then I started Shoflo.

My greatest career accomplishment: To have put together a talented group of people at Shoflo and then set out every day to solve problems in innovative ways. I also have a podcast for the event production industry at production-channel.com.
